Subject [jira] Commented: (HARMONY-6348) Remove @author tags from code
Date Thu, 08 Oct 2009 20:41:31 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-6348?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12763686#action_12763686

Mark Hindess commented on HARMONY-6348:

Jesse, I'd like to get agreement on the dev@ list before doing this.  If we decide it is the
right thing to do (and I think it probably is) then I'll happily write a perl script to remove
them so don't worry about creating a patch.
