The problem as I see it is how do you define the amount of contribution each
person gives, cause in my opinion even the users are contributors to the
project, without the users there would be no need for the project.

I think the measurement is :

1. what will it cost if you have to rewrite the authors code and all
derived works.
2. what if you just remove the code

This is the type of decision that people have to make when forks are
done and licenses cannot be settled.
