Summary for the impatient:
1. Don't add code to Emacs written by someone other than yourself
without thinking about the legal aspect (make sure they have an
assignment, if adding a file adjust the copyright statements in the
file). NB the ChangeLog entry should be in the name of the author of
the code, not the person who installs it.
2. When installing code written by someone else, I think it is helpful
to: i) put the name of the author in the cvs log (as well as the
ChangeLog); and ii) not check-in any of your own changes to the same
file in the same commit.
without thinking about the legal aspect. Even if the changes are
trivial, consider if they combine with previous changes by the same
author to make a non-trivial total. If so, make sure they have an
assignment. If adding a whole file adjust the copyright statements in
the file.
2. When installing code written by someone else, the ChangeLog entry
should be in the name of the author of the code, not the person who
installs it. I think it is helpful to put the author (if not yourself)
in the CVS log as well; and to not install any of your own changes in
the same commit.
3. With images, add the legal info to a README file in the directory
containing the image.
