Re: Foundation and Source Code Copyright

btw a good habit everyone should try to have is, when you modify a file add your name and date to the copyright list at the top. When submitting or reviewing a patch, should check for this.

I know I often forget it when I review and submit patches, but it's always correct and best to do this.

People sometimes feel shy about this but they should not - it's just a statement of fact. If you wrote some code in the file you (or your employer) will own the copyright, until/unless you sign a contract relaying it elsewhere. So adding your name to the top is a statement of this factual situation.
