Sure, but I am going to forward this message to the others. I probably
don't know the answer.

Yes. If you have it, I understand it helps. You sent a link to
google?! But it sounds like you are forking, so that might be enough
if the copyright holders allow this.

We might have to get public permission or I guess we could trust you
that you did, and let you fork it

"To join our efforts" would mean be part of our team, which according
to you the old php-sdl project is inactive. So I don't know how that

You misunderstood what Official GNU software is. If it was Official
GNU Software, your project would be owned by the GNU Project. You know
the projects make up the GNU Operating System like 'ls' and 'make'.
They would call your project GNU PHP-SDL if it were official.
Now you have to give links to all those projects that your project
depends on and what license they use. I am not sure about what you
mean by API.
I am not into law.
