   I find that gwhois/whois.c has:
   "Copyright 1999 by Marco d'Itri <address@hidden>."
   while gwhois/Makefile.am has:
   "Copyright (C) 2005 Free Software Foundation, Inc."

A mismatch between files is OK, but since Marco d'Itri has assigned
whois to the FSF, it should be OK to change this.

   I also find that inetd/inetd.c attaches a "copyrighted by FSF"
   notice above the "copyrighted by University of California"
   notice. Is the same template to be followed while modifiying any
   "The Regents of the University of California" copyrighted file?

We don't have a particular style for this, so it doesn't really
matter.  But all files should bear a proper GNU GPL copyright notice.

   If you do not think these are issues at all, then I will just go
   ahead and mutiliate the files with argp.h and leave the legal
   issues with you. :-)

Please leave the legal issues to me, I can't promise that I'll get
around to it any time soon, but we should do it before releasing 1.5
(whenever that might be).
