(of all projects, Mercurial!) take a look at Mercurial's attempt at relicensing last year (http://mercurial.selenic.com/wiki/Relicensing): they contacted all 300+ contributors as part of the process. Of course, we aren't talking about relicensing the whole codebase. However, I don't think any of the contributors agreed to assign their work to the 5 people mentioned above (eg. under a contributor licence agreement), so just getting the approval of them is not enough; you need to get the approval of *all* contributors to test-lib.sh. Here's what I get with 'git shortlog t/test-lib.sh | grep "^[A-Z]"' Alex Riesen (5): Brandon Casey (2): Bryan Donlan (3): Carl Worth (1): Christian Couder (1): Clemens Buchacher (3): David Reiss (1): Emil Sit (1): Eric Wong (3): Fredrik Kuivinen (1): Gerrit Pape (1): Jakub Narebski (1): Jeff King (7): Johan Herland (1): Johannes Schindelin (14): Johannes Sixt (12): Jonathan Nieder (1): Josh Triplett (1): Junio C Hamano (57): Lea Wiemann (5): Markus Heidelberg (1): Martin Waitz (1): Matthew Ogilvie (1): Matthias Lederhofer (1): Michael J Gruber (4): Michele Ballabio (2): Miklos Vajna (1): Nicolas Pitre (1): Pavel Roskin (3): Petr Baudis (3): Pierre Habouzit (2): Robin Rosenberg (1): Shawn O.
