Joint authorship exists only when all authors intend
that it should.

A “joint work” is a work prepared by two or more authors
with the intention that their contributions be merged into
inseparable or interdependent parts of a unitary whole.
In the case of a GPLed work, all authors are releasing their
work under a specific license. If those authors intended to
create a joint work, the license would say so. But it does not.
