Yes, we got this--you have to sign the assignment.

The one thing that is not entirely clear to some of us is what
happens if somebody signs the assignment and then presents PD
code (modified for use by Cygwin) as their own. It ought to be
permissible, but none of the IANAL's can really commit to that,
and as you said it's unlikely that RedHat is going to allocate
one of their lawyers to talk with some end user about it. So
we end up dancing around the point (like a bunch of hippos in
tutus) rather than addressing it head on. :-)

But as I said before, it is what it is.
