Subject [jira] Created: (HADOOP-1147) remove all @author tags from source
Date Thu, 22 Mar 2007 20:14:32 GMT
remove all @author tags from source

                 Key: HADOOP-1147
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-1147
             Project: Hadoop
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Doug Cutting
         Assigned To: Doug Cutting
            Priority: Minor

We should remove @author tags from the source code.  We give contributors credit in at least
three places (Jira, subversion and CHANGES.txt).  Many files have been substantially re-written
by a range of contributors and their @author tags are no longer accurate.  Also, @author tags
imply individual ownership, when we should rather strive for community ownership.
