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.".
