comment what is the transferability of changes in terms of a GPL license
Second, GPLv3 (which I prefer) is better in this regard than GPLv2, and you are reading it correctly. In GPLv2 changes needed to be timestamped. There was in fact a long discussion between the Debian legal team and the mplayer project about how detailed changes need be documented.

First of all, you did never grant him copyright on your work so you can start distributing under GPL and if he is cool with it, he will also distribute his copyrighted parts under GPL. If not, he can at most continue working with the last version of the code that you granted him any rights to work with. For the GPL itself it is not relevant who owns the copyright, it is perfectly fine to combine the work of two parties with different copyrights as long as both parts are GPL-licensed.
