True, but it is emacs, and that project requires a copyright assignment. If the author can withdraw that assignment, the project (and everyone else) would still have the right to use the code under the relevant Free software licence, but this project would have to reject it, or waive it's own rules on requiring assignment, so in this case it makes a difference to the project.
