Re: Why not contribute? (to GCC)

Although that's true, the stated concern with the assignment document
had to do with the question of the right to contribute the code.

But I'm confused here: if the entity submitting the code doesn't use
an assignment document to guarantee that he has the right to contribute
the code, then what document DOES that entity sign?  What DOES make sure
that no third party has a claim on the submitted code?
