Can developers have the option to assign copyright to GNOME foundation
for any GNOME code they write, with the ability for the GNOME foundation
to license (or directly assign) all evolution copyrights to Novell?

Any problem can be solved with sufficient levels of indirection, no? :)

The practical issue of paperwork signing should really be considered by
Novell, since it will limit its developer base.
