Re: [Bug 9] New: Complete list of copyrights

From: Matthew Dillon <dillon@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

    We have a file, /usr/src/COPYRIGHT, which is supposed to fill this
    role but it is almost certainly incomplete.

    We just need the copyrights, maintaining the corresponding files
    would be troublesome, unless we automate the requirement that all
    copyright statements appear in /usr/src/COPYRIGHT and enforce it
    in the cvs commit, then the file list could be generated automatically.

:We should have a complete list of copyrights (and corresponding files maybe). For a BSD license this 
:may even be needed (2nd term).
:Furthermore this will help 3rd parties to correctly attribute to copyright holders.
:One idea would be to semi-automatically generate this list by parsing sources; needs some logic tho.
