header copyright+licensing is talking about source generally, what can
be redundant in this case,
coz all files have same copyright+licensing and they are declared in
section Files.
But I like it this way , because this way can be applied to any kind
of package and
I like to have all packages with same copyright style if possible.

Of course I agree with this approach, that's what I'm trying to do :)

This project is not developed for awhile and also original  homepage
seems not exist (gazuga.net),
so contact original author (Pete Bessman <ninjadr...@gazuga.net>)
could be problematic,
but I can contact Eric, who is team member, if he has some suggestion
to this copyright file.
