Can you clarify this a bit? If individual contributions are now
copyright their original author, surely 2 only applies to Twisted code
as it stood at the time of your last commits.

Copyright can't be blanket asserted in the LICENSE file over code that
is added after that point.  Or am I misunderstanding what the LICENSE
file is saying?
