If "AUTHORS" are the copyright holders of your code, you will have to contact each of them before taking any legal decision, and that is BAD and can even kill your project, your pets and get your children in drugs. BAD BAD BAD. Please take a time to read http://www.softwarefreedom.org/resources/2008/foss-primer.html which talks about these issues. It's perfect to get credits, but that goes on the README... where you can state who do we owe most of the work on this or that area. and give thanks to other contributors. But the copyright holder shall be one. And everyone has to explicitly give that "one" the copyrights over the lines he authored. Better sooner than later, and please don't forget Author != Copyright holder. Alejandro Mery Just a happy pida user
