While relicensing mutagen I've also included contributions to quodlibet, so many of the original authors are covered as well: https://github.com/quodlibet/relicensing

Joe agreed to relicense the distutils code to standard MIT, which happened in 5957ba8

The plan I have in mind is going file by file, check out the history and rewrite the license header.
Once the easy stuff is done we can email the rest.

We don't need the license change right away, so there is no deadline.

git blame -C -C -M -e
git shortlog -sne

Since I don't have emails of you three, does anyone of you agree to provide your existing contributions to this repo under the terms of the GPLv2 or later (instead of GPLV2 only)?

I would provide the contributions public domain insofar as that is possible so I suppose, sure.
