Re: Why not contribute? (to GCC)


   legal reasons. The default disclaimer is nonsense, it is hard to find an 
   employer willing to sign a sensible disclaimer, and even when you have a 
   nice employer it can still take months (years?) to get things through the 
   FSF.

If it takes a long time, please contact rms@gnu.org or assign@gnu.org.

The disclaimers are legally necessary though, the FSF needs a paper
trail in the case your employer comes back and claims that they have
copyright over a change.
