Per the developer policy, the LLVM file header is:
// This file was developed by RANDOM NAME HERE and is distributed under
// the University of Illinois Open Source License. See LICENSE.TXT for
The continuing obvious problem is that this name is generally meaningless
as time goes on. People leave the project, code gets replaced, and
'ownership' changes. The current policy is that the person who creates
the file touches it.
Does anyone have a problem with changing this to:
// This file is distributed under the University of Illinois Open Source
// License. See LICENSE.TXT for details.
And leaving this whole business to our friendly version control system
(e.g. svn annotate), which has the perfect answer all the time?
