Copyright assignments are not required for all GNU projects, as Alfred
explained.  See for example GNU Freetalk and a lot of others.  And no,
RMS is not the only one that considers GNOME a GNU project (although
many GNOME contributors don't share our philosophy -- but that's not a
requirement for a GNU maintainer either).
