This is actually not true that Emacs repository has a separate copyright
assignment form.

CONTRIBUTE file says

    In most cases, to start the assignment process you should download
    and return the completed information to the address at the top.

This is linking to one of the forms at gnulib, the same with what
gnu.org suggests.

In contrast, we, in WORG, link to a _copy_ of the form rather than to
the original form.

I've just pushed some clarifications to org-maintenance page, adding the
correct link, but still leaving our current form - our form has one
answer pre-filled.

I am inclined to remove this todo - I already asked gnulib guys and they
contacted FSF about the latest version of the form. Until we get a
reply, there is nothing we can act upon. See
