mpv LGPL relicensing

The mpv project (a MPlayer and mplayer2 fork) is trying to relicense its code base from GPLv2 or later to LGPLv 2.1 or later. For that, we're asking MPlayer, mplayer2, and mpv contributors to give us permissions. This includes occasional or one-time contributors.
Please visit the issue below if you may have contributed to MPlayer, mplayer, or mpv.

Recent info:
Thanks to everyone who has replied! There are still about 60 names missing. Anyone who didn't reply yet, but is possibly reading this, your reply would make us very happy (even if you disagree to the license change).

Everyone who replied with a comment that we should assume their patch is in the public domain - we will just assume general agreement with relicensing (which legally is less questionable for us, since public domain does not exist everywhere).

It may or may not happen that some code will fall under LGPL3, which could mean that the final license will be LGPL3. This would affect people/projects who really wanted to use libmpv under LGPL2, but cannot accept LGPL3. Does anyone have a problem with this?

For what it's worth, the list of people who still who couldn't be reached is available here https://github.com/mpv-player/mpv/wi...ing-agreements.

If you know someone on that list or otherwise could help with info, please post to https://github.com/mpv-player/mpv/issues/2033 or here. Thanks.
