Subject Authors tag
Date Mon, 23 Feb 2004 13:17:10 GMT
Just noticed this in "ASF Board Summary for February 18, 2004"

  - 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.
