The individual authors are the copyright holders (except for those who made trivial changes only), so we need to know who they are in order to ask them to place the file under a certain license. Based on the git blame results you posted, it looks like we may ask magnum, Lukas, Claudio, JimF, Samuele, and Sayantan to approve a certain license, and we'll review the changes by Vlatko and bizonix to confirm that these are obviously too minor for copyright (which I guess is the case). As to my changes, I don't recall making any significant ones to this file, and I'd be involved in approving the license anyway. ;-) Right now, common-opencl.[ch] list Claudio, magnum, and the mysterious FIXME and Others as the copyright holders. ;-) They also use our cut-down BSD license, which is great. I think this implies that Claudio and magnum have approved of the license, so we only need to list Lukas, JimF, Samuele, and Sayantan as well, and to get their approval. > git blame can give a first idea who contributed how much, but it can be > misleading. > For common-opencl.c, the line counts attributed to individual authors is: > > > 503 magnum > 153 Lukas Odzioba > 120 Claudio Andr?? > 11 JimF > 8 Samuele > 4 Vlatko Kosturjak > 3 Solar > 2 bizonix > 1 Sayantan Datta > > > With git blame -M -C, the line counts are > 510 magnum > 153 Lukas Odzioba > 113 Claudio Andr?? > 11 JimF > 8 Samuele > 4 Vlatko Kosturjak > 3 Solar > 2 bizonix > 1 Sayantan Datta Thanks!
