Is there a legal entity behind freedesktop.org to assign copyright
In any case, you're essentially agreeing with me, I think - it *is*
Mikhail's copyright, and he has simply failed to assert it. (Of

respect is analogous to the Berne convention etc.)

policy and all the rest of the legal mumbo-jumbo that we're stuck
Sorta RFC3667 and RFC3668 for fd.o, really.
