Please point them to the archive for this thread. Specifically it
would be helpful for them to give _you_ feedback on your attempts to
switch or remove a large free software project's declared
contributor copyrights for your own packaging convenience. I
particularly find it galling that you suggest we should switch from
contributor-held copyright to a copyright assignment model because
it would make your life as a package maintainer easier. If there was
ever a good reason for copyright assignment in free software, that's
not it.
