Subject Re: Guidance on copyrights in sample code.
Date Tue, 04 Jul 2017 00:02:46 GMT
Hi James,

Instead of including "Copyright (c) 2001, Apache Foobar Foundation" in the sample code, would
it be possible/easy to "assume the copyright notice is in a file and include the file contents

That is probably how you would want to do it anyway, considering the task of updating copyright
years should be limited to one file per distribution in downstream users, similar to the single
copyright notice that an Apache project has in its distribution.
