all of them jointly.

It is the original authors who are copyright holders. As already 
documented before I believe it to be the most just solution. It allows a 
small team of developers to act like a big firm which employs a 
contributor license agreement. Who of you has ever complaint about 
contributor license agreements? Why do you not complain about Apple 
taking the FreeBSD kernel and exploiting it for its own profit without 
giving anything back to the open source community?
