I found a couple of "README" files where I hadn't done this, and 
fixed them.  However, after looking through quite a few others,
I didn't find any that needed them.  There are some files that 
shouldn't have them:  files generated by the programs and the 
`cwebmac.tex' files from the CWEB distribution.  If you found
any other files that should have them, but don't, would you
please tell me which ones?

The generated files contain information from data providers, and 
are protected by their own copyrights.  When I get a chance, I 
will add code to the various programs to write comments to the
generated files containing the copyright notices for the programs

I've done this now.

I've updated the files.  There at:

I've printed out the written permission I got from the director of the
institute.  In my request, I specifically mentioned that I wanted to 
have the projected hosted at Savannah.

Please let me know if there's anything else I need to do.
