Subject Re: ASF Board Summary for February 18, 2004

Shall we tackle the update this week?

Does this mean we have to have the full licence in each file
...or is the one and only copyright line good enough - if
there is a reference to the licence?

We had quite a discussion about this... remove the author tags on the same update?
