Ah, I forgot about those - I'll take care of them.

I haven't heard about the FSF Copyright Assignment Process  before.
I found some information about it online, but don't understand what
purpose it serves in this context. Do I need to follow through with it
to proceed with this contribution to Emacs?

That's really cool.  It seems to work fine here (Debian/bookworm), but
with these compilation warnings.

xterm.c: In function 'x_clear_rectangle':

We put the code into the development tree and wait for people to report
problems.  😀

Have you started the FSF copyright assignment process?
