In the U.S., yesterday was a federal holiday (Martin Luther King, Jr.
day) and the two days before were the weekend.

Most of git is GPLv2-only. (As an aside, if there's interest then I'd
be happy to see most of it change to GPLv2-or-later since that makes
it possible to link to code under the Apache License. But I'm also
happy with the status quo.)

Yeah, since these patches aren't adding a large new chunk of code
there's no need for a new copyright notice and so no place to put that
kind of thing unless Junio wants to relicense blame (which would be
orthogonal to these patches).
Thanks and hope that helps,
