"sopwith" (Elliot Lee) made the original checkin of the current CVS tree, so
a Really Old file checked in by sopwith probably means a file introduced to
the GIMP prior to whenever the prior CVS repository went byebye (1998
sometime, I think). I think, but am not entirely sure, that the two
patterns being referenced were part of 0.56, which would mean they trace
back to S&P. However, I seem also to recall that some of the pattern files
in 0.56 were, um, questionably appropriated from other sources (including
Adobe). I think the long and the short is that we don't really know where
they came from or who (if anyone) holds a copyright interest in them.
