Subject some source files seem to have @author tag containing copyright notices
Date Sat, 04 Oct 2003 13:40:39 GMT
(cc'ing general to inform the pmc. if this is not the right procedure then 
hopefully someone will post a correction.)

some of the source code (still under weblogic packages) contains some 
strange @author tags. example:

@author Copyright (c) 1997 by WebLogic, Inc. All Rights Reserved.

i think that looks a little confusing. if the code has been donated to 
apache then (as i understand it) the copyright is vested with the ASF (and 
indeed, this is stated above). the above line seems just to muddy the 

maybe this is just a mistake and the line should be:

@author WebLogic, Inc.

(or something like that.)
