Yes, I believe you must contact any code contributors before changing
the license because the assumption is that those code contributions
matched the license at the time the code was contributed.  If the
license changes, the original contributions retain the original license
unless you get their approval.  Dave Page went through this when he
changed the license of pgAdmin --- he had to contact all previous code
contributors to get their approval.
