Author tags SHOULD be limited to:

@author <a href="mailto:dev@excalibur.apache.org">Excalibur Development

All contributors SHOULD be noted in the file NOTICE.txt, which MUST be 
included in every distribution (and from which information MAY NOT be 
removed, according to the Apache License, v2). In addition, 
contributions from non-committers SHOULD be noted as such in the commit 
message that accompanies the commit, including contributor name and address.


There are many pros and cons to having author tags. It was decided 
ASF-wide and laid down by the board in a rather strong recommendation 
(not: requirement, hence the "SHOULD" and not the "MUST") that the ASF 
does not want author tags.

Rather than grind more teeth on this, lets incorporate by reference and 
respect the wish of the ASF in this matter.
