Re: Moving packages over to new module

I ended up using git log --grep=.... and have moved the packages. Using
'git blame' I found that a few copyright lines can be removed from
games.scm now. If a person has only imported a module ((gnu packages
base) for example), should I keep the copyright notice or lose it?
