Any chance I can get an electronic copy, so I can put them up for public

I recall, by the way, that Tripwire, Inc. is one of the other
organisations requiring copyright assignment for contributed code (for
its GPLed codebase).  But the development site seems to have no details:

(Niggle:  If FSF's templates have sufficient substance to be a creative
work, then copyright on them exists inherently by operation of law,
whether FSF claims it exists or not.)
