Subject Copyright statements
Date Fri, 09 Jun 2006 09:44:06 GMT
Are we using the appropriate copyright statements in the yoko code?  The 
code currently contains the following copyright statement:

// **********************************************************************
// Copyright (c) 2005-2006
// IONA Technologies PLC
// Dublin, Ireland and Waltham, MA, USA
// All Rights Reserved
// Licensed to apache under Apache 2.0 License - 2006
// **********************************************************************

I don't see a problem with the IONA copyright still being there, but 
this copyright refers to IONA granting rights to Apache.  Shouldn't this 
copyright statement also include the standard apache statement about 
what rights Apache is granting to use the code:

 * Copyright 2006 The Apache Software Foundation
 *  Licensed under the Apache License, Version 2.0 (the "License");
 *  you may not use this file except in compliance with the License.
 *  You may obtain a copy of the License at

 *  distributed under the License is distributed on an "AS IS" BASIS,
 *  WITHOUT WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND, either express or implied.
 *  See the License for the specific language governing permissions and
 *  limitations under the License.

Also, I'm assuming new files introduced into this code tree (i.e., not 
part of the original IONA contribution) should only have the Apache 
copyright statement.
Is there some correction required here?
