We're looking to update instructions for maintainers regarding copyright
paperwork before announcing the changes tomorrow. The section needing an
<https://www.gnu.org/prep/maintain/html_node/Copyright-Papers.html#Copyright-Papers>.
After receiving the necessary form, the contributor needs to sign it.
Contributors residing in the USA or Italy may use GPG in order to sign
their assignment. Contributors located in the USA, Germany, or India can
print, sign, and then email (or fax) a scanned copy back to the FSF.
(Specific instructions for both cases are sent with the assignment
form.) They may use postal mail, if they prefer. Contributors residing
outside the USA, Germany or India must mail the signed form to the FSF
via postal mail. To emphasize, the necessary distinction is between
residents and non-residents of these countries; citizenship does not
matter.

@donald I've updated the relevant sections in /prep/maintain.

@bug-gnulib, I updated the /prep/maintain by using the gendocs.sh

the gnulib git repo.
