It depends on what agreement he had with the contributors.  At Adobe, when
you contributed a patch to Flex, you first had to sign an agreement giving
Adobe all rights to your code (interestingly, Apache is not so formal about
patches coming in via JIRA anymore).  That's how we were able to donate the
Flex SDK without hunting down all the patch contributors.
