Subject [VOTE] Removing author tags
Date Mon, 02 May 2005 21:52:50 GMT
Hi all,

We discussed more that one year ago the removal of @author tags in our 
source files (see [1] and [2]) but although the consensus was to remove 
them, we never actually did it. Now most if not all new classes added 
since then have no @author tag, leading to a strange situation where 
"old" authors are named but not newer ones.

So I propose to remove @author tags with people names from all our 
source files.

Additionally, if you agree with removing names, do you want source files 
to have:
 [ ] no @author tag at all,
 [ ] @author The Cocoon development team
 [ ] @author ..... (something else)

Please cast your votes.

Additionally, non-committers that have contributed significant portions 
of code and think they will lose visibility with this removal can make 
their voice heard. We will consider updating either the release notes or 
the credits file.
