> To quote ASF Board resolution from May 2004: http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/jakarta-jmeter-dev/200402.mbox/%3C4039F65E.7020406@atg.com%3E

> * In conjunction with the the discussion about relicensing and some
>    copyright issues, the Board is establishing an official policy in this
>    area:
>    - each and every file must have exactly *one* Copyright line, specifying
>      The Apache Software Foundation. additional individual or corporate
>      copyrights are not allowed.
>      (of course, binary files or certain restrictively formatted files
>      cannot include the copyright and license, but the copyright/license
>      header should be in everything possible)
>    - for contributions of entire files/packages, it is permissible to
>      include a section saying something along the lines of "originally
>      written by ...". this text should occur *after* the copyright and
>      license header.
>    - author tags are officially discouraged. these create difficulties in
>      establishing the proper ownership and the protection of our
>      committers. there are other social issues dealing with collaborative
>      development, but the Board is concerned about the legal ramifications
>      around the use of author tags
>    - it is quite acceptable and encouraged to recognize developers' efforts
>      in a CHANGES file, or some other descriptive file which is associated
>      with the overall PMC or release rather than individual files.
