I believe the problem arises when other people have submitted
patches to a project that is under GPL, those patch authors
still retain the right to keep their contributions GPL if
they so desire.

But long as those people don't object, and the patches don't
contain code derived from some other GPL'd source, it really
shouldn't be a problem.
