I saw some other projects put both headers in a file with mixed content.
I don't think it is worth trying to find every instance of mixed content
in our releases, but for Matrix and FlatUI it could make sense.  What are
your thoughts on that?

I don't know what lawyers would say, but IMO, a patch belongs to the
person doing the modifications.  Otherwise, we'd get into some weird
nit-picking if someone submitted a patch where they deleted an unnecessary
line of code, we would say they didn't own the modification since all
content in the patch file would be stuff authored by others.

Looks like we're not going to cut an RC until Om fixes NPM so anyone who
has time to add more details is welcome to do so.
