A reply like "I am willing to have my contributions to dbus and dbus-glib
relicensed under the MIT/X11 style license quoted here", quoting the license
itself, would be ideal :-) The text below is copied from Ryan Lortie's original

Please "reply to all" to this email (ie: sending replies to
<desrt at desrt.ca> and <dbus at lists.freedesktop.org>) indicating your
willingness or unwillingness to have your contributions to dbus and dbus-glib
relicensed under the above terms.
Even if you believe your contributions to be trivial, please reply.
