Subject license headers and config section
Date Wed, 17 Sep 2014 09:17:56 GMT
Hi folks,

I've prepared a PR #169 which removes the license headers from the YAML 
blueprints, as discussed.  The reason was that these are used as 
examples, often cutting and pasting, and having the license really gets 
in the way at runtime.  (You can't see the blueprint when you paste the 
YAML into the GUI, all you see are the headers!)

I've also remove it from most of the HTML source pages:  I don't think 
we realized the implication of putting them there -- since most of the 
HTML pages are templates, the license header ends up included in the 
resulting HTML hundreds of times!  This bloats the pages and slows down 

The header is still included in the root index.html which is used for 
every page -- so it appears in every page at runtime.  It is also in 
every CSS and JS, where the optimizer can remove it so there is no 
runtime impact.

I think this is the best compromise but of course if there is guidance 
to the contrary we can reconsider.

I have also moved the config section to the summary tab, to try that 
out.  [#168]
