The problem is not really the copyrights, I think that all the developers 
deserve to be acknowledged for all the great things that they have done. The 
problem is the inconsistency in the licenses. 

After thinking about this for a while, I might be able to come up with 
something. I'll post it when I get it ready and see if you think it is OK. 
(Maybe it can be my first contribution to the project :) )

Thanks for listening
