Follow-up Comment #12, task #15348 (project administration): > Is there a way that we declare all the contributors (including > those in the future) as writers/copyright holders of some files?
I'm not a lawyer, but as far as I know, assigning copyright needs some kind of paperwork from the current copyright holders. Every time you add a contributor, you would need signed papers from every previous contributor. > It is not important to us who the exact authors of some files are. Having valid copyright notices is important for the users of your package. If you have no real commitment to maintain these records carefully, let us not register your package on Savannah. _______________________________________________________ Reply to this item at: <https://savannah.nongnu.org/task/?15348> _______________________________________________ Message sent via Savannah https://savannah.nongnu.org/
