I don't think we should remove names from status.xml.  The rationale for removing @authors
was to remove implied ownership of code for 1) legal reasons and 2) so people don't feel hindered
to work on "someone else's" code.  status.xml reflects significant modifications to Forrest,
which do not imply any ownership (because it is task-oriented not code-oriented and is stored
seperately from the code).  It provides us a way to see who has done what so we can go back
to that person with questions if we need to, and also to give some credit.

put apache 2.0 license on all source files

determine any non-apache dependencies (jars)

ensure that all jars have an accompanying XXX-license.txt

highly suggested to remove <author> tags in *.xml and @author in *.java

See some tools in the "committers" CVS module:

See some other notes in our repository at forrest/etc/relicense.txt
