Or saying it the other way around, the SGA doesn't force us to
maintain copyright notices or any other kinds of attributions.

To my understanding, that gives us freedom to remove such notices
after the donation, although we prefer it being done either before
or by one of the donators afterwards.

The ALv2, however, explicitly states that such notices must be preserved.

I have to admit, I hadn't remembered that difference until I looked up the
SGA and ALv2 again after Sam's post.

So with respect to these copyright notices, we typically don't comply by the
ALv2 conditions for donations, but by the SGA conditions, right?
