i think that we need to add a section to the notice but i'll check
with legal-discuss. the answer then probably needs to be added to the
release documentation on

thought they were but needed to check. these documents lack copyright
notices. this may cause issues in some jurisdictions (but probably not
the US).

i agree that it is not a good idea to generate files with copyrights in them.

however, they are source code and where this is possible it is good to
have headers. if the templating language allows comments (which do not
end up in the generated document) then the best approach is to use
these. if this is not possible then it's probably best not to include
headers and instead add a README to the directory with the header and
indicating that these files are offered under the ASL.
