LOL ;-) human minds are indeed a different topic, although some people
think they know the 'Theory of Mind' [1] (although it is just a loud
name for smth which should have been named "Theory of Mine" at best ;-))

hm... then I am not sure how you could talk about transferring copyright
to FSF if it is not even vaguely known who owns copyrights over current
code? I guess, all your contributions are copyright by you (or should it
be Canonical?), and pardon my ignorance -- who is klm?

may be for now I could simply list all 4 of you (including Tim) as
copyright holders (and will lookup dates for those two in the logs)

right -- but that is for python-mode.el, and was I right about those
pycomplete.* and doctest* files present in the repository (and shipped
in the debian package)?

yeah -- I will check it out if it is anyhow possible to push my new
branches (debian at least) into bzr. Otherwise, since I've not patched
actual code (just packaging), I have nothing to contribute to
trunk python-mode.el.
