| No, the copyright on gmp has been assigned to the FSF. The patches you
| mention have not had their copyirhgt assigned to the FSF; but that is
| not the reason that have not been incorporated into GMP.
But it is a reason not to incorporate them into GPG. Look at the rights
fiasco that is XEmacs some time. There is code in there that nobody knows
who owns anymore.
| Also, RMS does allow distribution of things that have not been signed
| over to the FSF; from memory either shtools or libtools has not been.

Note the second line.
My quick perusal of windowmaker.org says nothing about Copyright either
way, only that as of January this year it is officially a GNU project.
