Carsten moved IDLWAVE into Emacs in 2000, but the help support packages
were distributed separately (since they relied on non-free HTML
documentation).  In 2003, a new method was developed which overcame this
issue, and idlw-help.el was moved in.  Do I need to do something to update
my copyright assignment for idlw*.el?  Carsten no longer maintains it.
