I expected to get an "obviously an assignment is required" reply but
I got none, so maybe it is not so obvious. The locale files contain
little creativity, even less than e.g. the timezone files which at least
contain very detailed rationale for each record.
So this is a ping and I'm also Cc'ing firstname.lastname@example.org and Brett Smith
who was interested in locales copyright before as well:
(Note that this licence is still used for some locales.)
P.S.: I'm not interested in fixing up any past (c) mistakes, someone
else or the FSF would have to spend their time on that. I just want
to clarify the policy for future submissions.
