You have no idea what can of worms you just opened up with admitting to
a "relaxed" attitude towards contributions. I now have to consider that
you may have a serious provenance issue with your code, and may well
have GPL'd code lifted from gcc in your tree. Modify it a bit, slap an
ISC license on it, and presto, you claim credit.

It doesn't work that way. Integrity might be old-fashioned, but it
never goes out of style.
