That's exactly what the blanket assignment means. In fact one of the
goals, going back to the overall Darwin open source effort, was to
enable non-Apple people to contribute code to public repositories
without being blocked on Apple engineers unavailable due to internal
deadlines and such. (Yes, it could also be thought of as exploiting the
community :-) , but now it's working to our advantage.)
There is no copyright obstacle that I know of - Apple made a blanket
assignment to the FSF for all future GDB changes.
I'm still a bit concerned, primarily because I'm not a lawyer.
But does having a blanket assignment for all past and future changes
mean that any GDB code they write and put on their website is
automatically assigned to the FSF?
