The problem was with some of the other contributors, from what I remember.

For example, Andreas Roehler has issues with copyright assignments:


So it is. My views didn't change since.

Besides that, in 2008 an attempt was made to make a list of all the
contributors (it's presumably out-of-date now). The next step would be
for someone to figure out how much each person wrote.

Computing is about ideas, not about counting code-lines.

Even if a developer noticed a bug at the other side, which helped him to choose the right alternative, the other part is involved. Copyright in computing is such a nonsense, it's a shame pretending it.

But let's come to some mistakes more neareby:

- Stating someone signed the copyright-papers or not doesn't belong into the comment section of a code-file. That why I coming upon and the only reason so far.

- The problems of Emacs' Python edits don't result from the existence of two different development branches, where _all_ developers have some merits of every side, as pointed at above. The problems result rather from a lack of imagination what's needed to have an environment as state of the art.

So please, let's not jump into that eternal copyright loop. Let's go on bug-fixing and maybe building the environment afterwards.
