Please see the actual assignment text rather than spreading FUD. There is
no requirement or expectation for code contributed to glibc to be usable
in non-copyleft libraries, and the person or company assigning rights is
in any case granted rights to use the code they contributed under other
terms if they wish to do so. See e.g.
"Thus, we grant back to contributors a license to use their work as they
see fit. This means they are free to modify, share, and sublicense their
own work under terms of their choice. This enables contributors to
redistribute their work under another free software license. While this
technically also permits distributing their work under a proprietary
license, we hope they won't.".
