Foundation and Source Code Copyright


During discussions about copyright at GUADEC several people mentioned
that developers were not encouraged to assign copyright to the GNOME

A couple of developers, including myself, have been working on a new
capplet for the control center. Since we had been working on it as a
group we decided it would be fairest to assign copyright to the
foundation rather than any particular individual. Are we to understand
that this is not to be advised and if so why?

While we have been discussing this issue, we also discovered that many
of the source files in control center did not have copyright
statements and those that did were probably out of date and did not
include the names of all the contributors. Could the foundation advise
us on what needs to be done and how we could rectify the situation as
quickly as possible.
