This actually brings up a slightly more subtle problem, the "Have we
therefore actually found _all_ the developers": You're not listed on the
ChangeLog or Credits for Synaptics, so given you've managed to be missed
off these, then who else has contributed and isn't logged or credited? If
anyone is left out of agreeing to a licensing change, then any relicensing
is obviously bogus by default.
(I'm not going to debate the license change in this particular thread (see
my other message for that) I just wanted to bring up this particular point
here for future reference).
