Re: GPL v2 versus GPL v3

"Maybe a good time to move the Linux kernel to GPL v3 which explicitly removes the option to rescind contributions but unsure that is possible to apply retrospectively."

That would require getting confirmation from all contributors, including those you can't find and from the executors of those who no longer exist.
