Well, the stated copyright ownership is a mistake, so whether you decide you
want to assign copyright to the Foundation or just correct the problem, you
have to know who *actually* owns the copyright. Going through the logs and
listing committers and attributed contributors would be the first step along
that painful path. :-)
