I knew from the beginning anything related to license will be fun. :-)
In this particular case, I don't think I need to get confirmation from
all rights holder because they've agreed to the licenses listed in
the comment. I'm merely fixing a bug in code.
I understand people have different opinion on how this should be

our energy to more useful things in life.
