I've tried to. He can't do it. He doesn't know who all the contributors are anymore. :-(

Subject: synaptics driver MIT license approach

Hi list,

the synaptics touchpad driver is currently GPL. I will try to contact
any author I could find in the sources or the webpage and ask them to
accept the MIT license.

The progress can hopefully be tracked over here:

If you have information about authors that accepted the MIT license,
please inform me so i don't bother them about the same issue over and

Thanks in advance,
  Christoph Brill
