    Bollocks it is.

    All the code I submitted I've submitted under the GPL, the real GPL not
    the Linus one. All the code I submitted prior to your change and all the
    code I and everyone else submitted prior to that change you have no
    authorisation or right to claim ownership and relicensing rights over
    beyond those originally granted. As such you have no right to restrict
    them or to claim they are GPLv2 only.
