Follow-up Comment #26, bug #48774 (project octave):

@Juan: Regarding copyright, I re-formatted the copyright block to use the same
line breaks, and https instead of http in links, as the rest of Octave
m-files.  Everything else about the license (GPL3) is the same.

I touch a lot of the Octave code and therefore I usually don't bother to add
my name to the copyright holder list.  I agree that I made significant enough
changes to movfun.m that I could be listed as an additional copyright holder,
but I didn't feel like it.

For the movXXX functions, I did not use the code from your repository.  I
wrote a blank function template with copyright block, documentation, nargin
checking, call to movfun, and BIST tests for input validation.  I then used
perl to change this template in to the many different movXXX functions.  After
the base change I went in and edited the documentation.  For example,
'movmean' says "Calculate the moving average over a sliding window"  It does
not say "Calculate the moving mean" because that is not the natural phrasing
in English.  Since I created these functions separately I assigned myself
copyright.  The possible exception to this is movmin.m which did have an
initial implementation.  If you would like copyright for that m-file that
would be fine.
