As was concluded in this mailing thread,


the third option is to contribute the code under GPLv2. Personally, I would
strongly recommend to contribute under GPLv2 only. There are good and
important reason why the GPL exists and why it is used by many of the most
successful free software projects. Most of the code by core developers is
contributed to the project under GPLv2 only, as is most of the major
external contributions.
