Copyright notices [bugzilla-daemon@mozilla.org: [Bug 294160] move product related routines into the new Products.pm]

Christian Robottom Reis

I have a special query spawned in bugmail from bug 294160, as below -- I
was almost sure that Products.pm, being at least partially derived from
editproducts.cgi, should retain the original copyright notice and
contributor list.

----- Forwarded message from [hidden email] -----

>+# The Initial Developer of the Original Code is Netscape Communications

>+# Copyright (C) 1998 Netscape Communications Corporation. All
>+# Rights Reserved.

  And yes, LpSolit is right about this -- this should be either Tiago or Async.

----- End forwarded message -----

Who's right? Gerv and Dave have laid down the law on this before, but my
memory is broken.

Take care,

Yes - unless a file is a totally new creation, in which case the creator
is the Original Developer, then you should use the Original Developer
section from the base file. If there are multiple base files, use the
one you took most code from, and add the other entity as a Contributor.
