Even in Sun's JRL source author was mentioned. I think, the lawyer guys and
girls from Sun should rethink that subject.
Ok, we will see ...
The problem is more human. One would like to give credit for good ideas
or good analysis, but the only official way to give credit in a commit
via a simple
which raises legal doubts even when there is no copyrighted material.
I guess one can abuse the Summary: field to squeeze in thank-yous,
but it's pretty obvious that you are circumventing the process.
