    Just in case it helps I have just sent the copyright assignment papers
    to the FSF.

Thank you!

You're welcome. :-)

I've sorta dropped the ball on this, sorry for that.  Do you want to
take the ball? Whip up the patches, etc?  And I'll hand out commit
(after approval) access for you when the paperwork is done.

I am not sure what you mean by "take up the ball" exactly.

I am currently not a GNU (co-)maintainer, and have never been.

I can expand the patches to comprise hopefully appropriate
changes to the NEWS file, and provide a suitable commit message
in a format usable with 'gitlog-to-changelog'.  I can do that
using 'git format-patch' so the result can be applied easily to
the development repository.

At least initially I'd feel more comfortable with existing GNU
inetutils maintainers reviewing and applying my patches.

I am open to start on the way towards becoming a co-maintainer
of GNU inetutils, but I do not feel comfortable taking over too
many responsibilities at once.

I am mostly interested in the telnet client for interoperability
with existing systems.  That is the one component I am likely
to use regularly in the future.  GNU inetutils comprises more
than just that.

I hope that you can make use of the help I am able to provide.

Best regards,
