+While we do not have plans to switch to GPL version 3 at this particular
+point in time, we do, for a number of reasons, wish to have the option
+available in the future. Unfortunately there are some bits of code in
+MPlayer, which are licensed as GPL version 2 only. Trying to get in
+contact with the authors of these parts has been fruitless, we have
+had no reaction from them.
+Thus we are looking for help contacting them. Specifically, we are
+searching for the authors of
+<dd>written by Bernhard Rosenkraenzer, last known email
+addresses &lt; bero at arklinux dot org &gt; and
+&lt; bero at redhat dot com &gt;</dd>
+<dd>written by Mike Baker, last known email address
+&lt; mbm at linux dot com &gt; and Christopher Wingert, last known
+email addresses &lt; mailbox at wingert dot org &gt;
+and &lt; usenet at wingert dot org &gt;
+and &lt; tivo at wingert dot org &gt;</dd>
+<dd>written by Florian Schneider, last known email address
+&lt; flo-mplayer-dev at gmx dot net &gt;</dd>
+If you know how to get in
+touch with them or if you are one of the people we are seeking, please
+<a href="mailto:webmaster_REMOVE_THE_UNDERSCORES_AND_THE_TEXT_IN_BETWEEN_ at mplayerhq.hu">contact us</a>
+so that we can get these issues resolved. Thanks a bunch.
