However, all that doesn't mean it might not be good for TDF to offer
the choice of copyright assignment without requiring it; something
that would
also be good to offer the estates of deceased developers when those
arrive. But that is all - an option should the developer with to
exercise it.

Having read all fine explanations, (strong) opinions, I think this is
simply the best we can do.

So +1 from my side,

+1 too.

It's clear what positions people have about this matter, and it's rather difficult they will change their mind.

Politely asking the contributors whether they want to assign their copyright to the foundation or not, it's a needed compromise.

I hope nobody has something to object about an action *voluntarily* done by the contributors, though it may involve some minor cost.
