They are really boring jobs only for the maintainer, but if you want to know, I
tell you.

One thing is that PUPA contains copyrighted materials by some people. So I need
to ask them to assign their copyrights to the FSF.

Another is a bit complicated. I have already assigned my copyright on GRUB both
for the past and for the future, so my  text (code and documentation) for GRUB
gets copyrighted by the FSF automatically. However, PUPA is a separate project,
so my text for PUPA is copyrighted by myself but not by the FSF. I don't know
what happens if my text for PUPA is moved to GRUB: Is it copyrighted by me
until I sign another papaer explicitly? If yes, what kind of paper? It is
necessary to discuss these questions with the FSF.

I really don't like this kind of statement. Did you look at the page actually?
The link has been there for more than one year.
