I don't think there's any dispute over that. The question is whether
this is important enough to waste another release cycle over.

Faced with that, I don't see how a legal nit over the copyright line
should cause people to have to go to the trouble of testing yet another
candidate tarball.

As we saw with APR, there are only so many unreleased candidates a group
can take before they just stop bothering to test them.

There is a complete lack of direction from ASF board/legal on this btw,
despite your assertion.

If you feel that strongly about it, veto the code change, and I'll tag
and roll 2.0.58.
