Thanks.  This likely means that we're better off getting a new assignment --
this kind of language "Assigns changes" typically means an assignment for a
specific set of changes.  If the scope of the changes increased over time,
then the new changes would not be covered by the old assignment.

I'd be much more comfortable if Algorithmics would sign a past & future 
assignment for binutils, gcc & gdb.
