Subject Re: @author tags

I'm not on the board, but I'm aware of two issues:

1) The ASF board has concerns over the legal ramifications of @author
tags in code.  IE it might be possible for someone to sue someone listed
as an @author.

2) The tags have caused social issues in some projects (conflicts
between people) which has not happened on HttpClient.
