Since AUCTeX is an official GNU project, you have to file a Copyright
Assignment before your code can be considered for inclusion.  To do
that, please fill out the following form and send it to address@hidden
They'll send you some letter per snail mail which you have to sign and
send back.  (Depending on where you live, that might also be doable with

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
Please email the following information to address@hidden, and we
will send you the assignment form for your past and future changes.

Please use your full legal name (in ASCII characters) as the subject
line of the message.

[What is the name of the program or package you're contributing to?]

[Did you copy any files or text written by someone else in these changes?
Even if that material is free software, we need to know about it.]

[Do you have an employer who might have a basis to claim to own
your changes?  Do you attend a school which might make such a claim?]

[For the copyright registration, what country are you a citizen of?]

[What year were you born?]

[Please write your email address here.]

[Please write your postal address here.]

[Which files have you changed so far, and which new files have you written
so far?]

One problem with changes to context.el right now is that Berend (in Cc)
has done a major overhaul of context.el which he has not pushed to
AUCTeX's git repository so far.  I'd prefer if he'd push first.  Then
you can check if you still need changes to get it work.

(Basically, if you can wait with the Copyright Assignemnt until Berend's
changes have landed in the Git repo, unless you are planning to
contribute more in the next time.)

So Berend, would you please be that kind to push your context.el changes
anytime soon?
