For the record, can you clarify what attribution should be used for the following files in the Gentoo repository? - eclasses - init files & other scripts - patches (written by a Gentoo developer vs external contributor) As a specific case, if a new package is submitted with an openrc init script written by the contributor, and they have their name in it; should that remain intact (and what should be done later when modifying that file). This would hopefully be the start of a attribution example guide that could provide clear examples (which don't belong in the GLEP itself). -- Robin Hugh Johnson Gentoo Linux: Dev, Infra Lead, Foundation Treasurer E-Mail : robbat2@g.o GnuPG FP : 11ACBA4F 4778E3F6 E4EDF38E B27B944E 34884E85 GnuPG FP : 7D0B3CEB E9B85B1F 825BCECF EE05E6F6 A48F6136
