Subject [jira] [Commented] (GEODE-52) Remove @author tags from Java source
Date Sun, 07 Jun 2015 23:57:00 GMT


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:

> Apache generally frowns on @author tags (as they imply ownership of the code by a single
individual, see [best

as an example)
