If the "original authors" accept a developer's code to be integrated into the BusyBox project they show their intent to include that new contributor as a joint author.

No, that's completely wrong. The new developers prepare work distributed under the GPL, distribute it to the original developers, and those developers prepare a derivative work based on the original program and the new piece, and distribute that under the GPL. No one
 is creating a joint work.

That reply was lame Hyman... really lame. I expected better from you.
