I like to mention that any license change cannot be made based on a
majority vote or any other method other than getting each author (or
its legal representative) to *explicitly* allow the change. The method
of "nothing heard equals consent" is not valid in any jurisdiction I
know of.

While I'm not a contributor (I think I only sent in a small diff years
ago), I would like to stress that the planned relicensing procedure is
not legal and can be challenged in court.
