Dropping an email from the copyright line makes sense; dropping the
Copyright declaration altogether is a bit odd (the GPL works only in
tandem with a copyright assertion) - but as you are the author of the
line and copyright holder of your contributions, I am not in a position
to say you are wrong in removing it, only that it looks odd.
