If there are multiple authors to a contribution, then they all need to
have an OCA on file. If one or more contributions are done on behalf of
an organization, such as a company, than that organization needs to have
an OCA on file, as well. Details are discussed in the OCA FAQ, available
at http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/oca-faq-405384.pdf .

Fwiw, I don't think that kind of transfer would work, in general.
Contributions need to come in under OCA or an equivalent.
As a general aside, while I don't know how the specific code in question
was authored by whom on whose behalf, putting in all the work necessary
to unravel the history of third party code in order to understand who
can contribute what, if anything, could be more work and more time
consuming than coming up with a better & novel solution from scratch, if
it's 'just' a couple of bug fixes.
