No, you need approval of all copyright holders. Everyone who has  
submitted patches and did not explicitly assign the copyright to one  
of the FPC team members, retains the copyright on the code in that  
patch (to the extent that this code was copyrightable in the first  
place, i.e. it was not simply a typo-correction or so -- where  
exactly the boundary is can only be decided by a court on a case-by- 
case basis).
