Historical and cultural. We try to avoid personal ownership and
attribution within the code, favoring the notion that the whole group is
responsible for the software. Although, in some files there are mentions
of the "author", in the sense of who originally wrote it and can probably
provide the best support and bug-fixing for it. In this case, we usually
say "Originally written by Sascha Schumann."
