My first contribution was merged in 2003 if you are looking for older

It sounded like you wanted to keep it a secret in your product that is
would be based on TinyCC. That is in violation of the second clause of
the BSD license. The MIT license has a similar clause (actually it is
more similar to the first BSD clause but not restricted to source code).
