Actually these days you can do most of it via email.

First you need to choose the appropriate form to fill out,
depending upon whether you want to create a one off assignment
for a single contribution, or an ongoing assignment for multiple
patches.  Plus you need to choose which package(s) you will
want to assign to (or all of them if you want).

Have a look at the files in the doc/Copyright directory of the
Gnulib project:


The one that most contributors use is request-assign.future.

Read it, fill in the details and email it off to the FSF.  They
should  take things from there.
