Subject @author tag usage is discuraged from ASF
Date Wed, 25 Feb 2004 10:36:58 GMT
Hi:

While reviewing where the build failed, I saw some @author tags that the
ASF opted to avoid:

http://nagoya.apache.org/eyebrowse/ReadMsg?listName=community@apache.org&msgNo=3049

<snip>
* In conjunction with the the discussion about relicensing and some
   copyright issues, the Board is establishing an official policy in this
   area:

   ...
   - author tags are officially discouraged. these create difficulties in
     establishing the proper ownership and the protection of our
     committers. there are other social issues dealing with collaborative
     development, but the Board is concerned about the legal ramifications
     around the use of author tags

   - it is quite acceptable and encouraged to recognize developers' efforts
     in a CHANGES file, or some other descriptive file which is associated
     with the overall PMC or release rather than individual files.
...
</snip>

It can be done while changing license. WDYT?

Best Regards,

Antonio Gallardo
