After proposing a change to Horizon to remove the @author tags from the
header of Python files (https://review.openstack.org/#/c/126656/)
Matthias Runge proposed to discuss this first on the mailing list.

Is it necessary to track the authorship of a file inside the file using
@author tags?

The copyright statement itself is unchanged and intact after the removal
of the @author tags.

The copyright statement is not addicted to the authorship of a file so
it should be safe to remove the @author tags.

The @author tag is not used in other projects. Neutron removed all
@author tags some time ago and there are no @author tags e.g. in Nova,
or Cinder. There are even local hacking checks in Nova, and Neutron to
not use @author tags.

Christian.
