Roman Shaposhnik commented on GEODE-52:
---------------------------------------

[~jblum] FWIW: I honestly don't see the *reason* for author tags to be there, but I can see
a potential downside. If you feel strongly about this issue feel free to start a thread on
the dev@geode ML. That said, the foundation's position on these tags is well known: http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/jackrabbit-dev/200409.mbox/%3C992CD166-121E-11D9-81CB-000393753936@gbiv.com%3E

> Apache generally frowns on @author tags (as they imply ownership of the code by a single
individual, see https://blogs.oracle.com/ahe/entry/coding_conventions_and_attribution [best
asf link is not working, annoyingly] and https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/AVRO/How+To+Contribute
as an example)
