AFAIK, newlib doesn't impose that you assign your copyright to anyone ...
why wouldn't you keep it in your own name?  I'm working on some code I'd
like to submit to newlib, and I want to be sure I don't have to go through
some arcane copyright assignment process.  Can someone give a clear answer
as to whether code submitted for inclusion into newlib has any
restrictions, other than being covered by a license newlib already
