hmm -- my name stand large and bold below MathGL3d
and the *.m packages have usual a
(* Copyright: *)
(* Author: *)
entry with the name of the developer or the company

The most Mathematica packages 100-200 kByte of (ASCII) code -- how many 
developers may have written this ? 100 or 1000 ?? in the most cases
one or two developer have produced the package.

Take the (* Author : *) entry form the *.m files and ask Google or
ask the Wolfram support for the e-mail ...
