Generally, copyright notices should be moved from their original  
location in the source and put into the NOTICE file. Since there is  
already the Sun copyright notice in NOTICE, the original can simply be  
replaced by the Apache license. The history in svn has the original  
copyright so it's not lost.

There are different forms of the Apache license depending on the type  
of file, e.g. java source has the /** style format, xml would have the  
<!-- format, shell scripts would have # format, etc.

If a file format cannot accept any comments (rare) then this should be  
noted in a discussion of the RAT output in the vote message.
