That paperwork is really not worth at all for such a trivial change. Dont count the tests - they are not copyright-able :) Anyway the patch is entirely based on your suggestions, and no new code was introduced. Claiming a copyright for skipping one space char is a little bit crazy, isnt it? Even the idea for it is only a logical conclusion if you just compare the different checksum tools, nothing more. ** I post here on a public list that I donate any rights on this trivial change to the FSF, and that it was entirely my own idea, and that I am an independent developer, and not connected to any company. ** I only looked into the patch to speed up the process of getting this into coreutils, and to the benefit of all users. thanks, Gün.
