++ It makes sense to ensure that the solution actually solves the problem before we simply implement it. If we really need such a file it would probably also make more sense to have it auto-generated from git commit headers, which could use a standardized format. This would actually provide more useful data around authorship/copyright than a generic file with a list of names anyway. Certainly standards like SPDX should be leveraged. These tags could be optional in git, but anybody who wants to use these tags could do so and tools that parse them could be created by those interested in this information. -- Rich -- Rich
