The intent is stated clear, 100% clear, by their collaborative actions
via busybox.net you moron Hyman.

Looks reasonable, except:

1) Please use your own copyright notice.  We're not the FSF, you don't
assign 
copyright to us.  And legally assigning copyright isn't trivial, which
is one 
of the issues in the SCO vs Novell lawsuit.  A decent summary is here:

http://www.groklaw.net/article.php?story=20040326223857634

Putting Erik's copyright notice on it is not an "instrument of
conveyance", 
and if we go to enforce copyrights on a joint work it would SUCK for the 
other side to be able to point out examples showing that who owns what
is 
unclear.

(Note that we don't always list every copyright in the files, especially
when 
we add a small chunk to a large existing file. Instead we mention the 
contributor in the SVN checkin comment for that commit.  I just don't
want 
there to be _false_ information in there.)"

LMAO!
