To summarize from similar discussions on the commons and tomcat lists:


- Removing author tags without the author's consent: absolutely not,


- Removing author tags with the author's explicit consent in a publicly
archived forum (e.g. any apache mailing list archive, but not a private
email) is OK.


- Using tags like 

"@author <a href="http://logging.apache.org <http://logging.apache.org/>
">The Logging Services Team</a>"

is encouraged.


- If the author wants his/her name in the file, that's fine, but authors
are discouraged from putting their email addresses in the file, so

ir%20email%20addresses%20in%20the%20file,%20so%22@author>  Bob Smith" is
better than

"@author <a href=mailto:bobs@apache.org>"@author <a
href="mailto:bobs@apache.org">file, that's fine, but authors are
discouraged from putting their email addresses in t.


That's about it.
