Where does it say that on the policy page?


All I see is

If the source file is submitted with a copyright notice included in it,
the copyright owner (or owner's agent) must either:

   1. remove such notices, or
   2. move them to the NOTICE file associated with each applicable
project release, or
   3. provide written permission for the ASF to make such removal or
relocation of the notices.

clear that the policy for *new* files coming into the ASF that they must
not contain a copyright statement.

Not this is separate from existing copyright statements in existing
files in ASF svn respositories.
