You are FUD-ing a lot here.

Nope, not at all.

Nope, they are not Debian-specific.  They are commited to our own repo
on Savannah.

Nope. That never happened, you are completely inventing this.

What did happen is that upstream glibc said they'd really want to have
glibc master actually build on the Hurd (and even cross-build, which is
not the harder part) so that they can do build tests while revamping the
code.  That only just makes sense.

Mach is covered by copyright assignments too, only Mig is not.
The fact that the base code copyright isn't owned by the FSF doesn't
mean the changes can't be.
