Hi Carl,

here is my report of git's test-lib relicensing. The following is the
last list sent to me by Junio. I guess you have this information
somewhere in your mailbox as well.

According to https://git.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/Test-lib_reclicensing
we can add there the following lines:

There are three contributors who didn't respond to me. The contributions
of two of them are clearly not copyrightable (Stephan Beyer and Bert
Wesarg - see the links to commits in the wiki). The last contributor is
Bryan Donlan who fix a few quoting problems which are quite simple but I
do not have any clue whether this is copyrightable or not
(see gitk --author='Bryan Donlan' t/test-lib.sh).

Junio was talking about only three missing Acks so I guess he already
did some filtering based on copyrightability. Do you know which three
Acks were missing according to Junio and whether these are in my list?
