We should also license dbus-glib appropriately. If we can assume that
people's permission to relicense dbus to MIT/X11 can also be applied to
dbus-glib, then we have the following contributors (as determined by AUTHORS,
copyright statements, and the git log):

The following people agreed to relicense their company's contributions to dbus:

Rob Taylor <rob.taylor codethink.co.uk> - on behalf of Codethink
Robert McQueen <robot101 debian.org> - on behalf of Collabora
Mikael Hallendal <micke imendio.com> - on behalf of Imendio
Kimmo Hämäläinen <kimmo.hamalainen nokia.com> - on behalf of Nokia
Michael Meeks <michael ximian.com> - on behalf of Novell
Havoc Pennington <hp redhat.com> - on behalf of Red Hat

which covers the following people too:

S. Nallammai <snallammai novell.com> #9832 - Novell
Kristian Hogsberg  <krh redhat.com> - Red Hat
Alex Larsson <alexl redhat.com> - Red Hat
John (J5) Palmieri <johnp redhat.com> - Red Hat
David Zeuthen - Red Hat
Richard Hult <richard imendio.com> - Imendio

and possibly also:

Seth Nickell <seth gnome.org> - Red Hat?
