I asked him to do it. It seems that he still has the account, but I have
no idea if he uses Linux or not (last time he was not), and it may be
*very* probable that he does not have a CVS checkout. So I don't expect
that he can do the change himself, but he can send a mail to authorize
I think it was already a case when the license changed (in KMail,
adding the Qt exception?), and I don't think the change was committed
by every single copyright holder. You know, what is the case when the
same file has many copyright holders. Who makes the commit?
