Which BusyBox authors do not intend for their contributions to
become interdependent parts merged into the BusyBox program?

BusyBox authors create independent or derivative works
(depending on whether the code they are writing is new
or is a modification of existing code). They create a
new version of BusyBox by checking this code into the
BusyBox source code control system, this new version
being a derivative work of the previous version. Since
no BusyBox author has declared his intention that the
entire work be a joint work, it is not. Instead, it is
a collective work formed from the contributions of its
many authors.
