i have therefore choosen to snip it.

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.

Yeah, indeed.

David, also note that you probably have been addressed because scripts/get_maintainer.pl will look into the git history of files that some patch addresses and pick up significant and/or recent contributors from there. There should be some opt-out statement from that, but I don't recall how.
