No, I don't think that this will be 'nough.
It should also be no problem to send the mail to all listet in the Authors 
file and wait for a negative response, if no one disagrees it'll be ok. 
That is a "reasonable effort" I think of. Everybody contributed code under 
the terms of the GPL, so nobody can assume that everybody will also agree 
to the exception.
