Here's the complete list from git history:

   ebuild-functions.tex
      default src_unpack (5 lines):
      Stephen Bennett, Fernando J. Pereda

      default src_configure (5 lines):
      Ciaran McCreesh

      default src_compile for EAPI 0 (8 lines):
      Stephen Bennett, Ciaran McCreesh, Fernando J. Pereda

      default src_compile for EAPI 1 (8 lines):
      Stephen Bennett, Ciaran McCreesh, Fernando J. Pereda

      default src_compile for EAPI 2 (5 lines):
      Ciaran McCreesh

      default src_install for EAPI 4 (16 lines):
      Ciaran McCreesh

   pkg-mgr-commands.tex
      einstall command (7 lines):
      Stephen Bennett, Ulrich Müller

   eclasses.tex
      EXPORT_FUNCTIONS example (8 lines):
      Stephen Bennett, Ciaran McCreesh

   env-saving.listing (21 lines):
      Ciaran McCreesh

Some of the code is of course taken from elsewhere, like ebuild.sh
(some of the default phase functions) or skel.ebuild (einstall).
And probably anything below 10 nonempty lines is not copyrightable
anyway (at least that's the rule the FSF applies).

As far as my changes are concerned, I release them under
CC0-1.0-Universal.

Ulrich
