Follow-up Comment #6, task #14085 (project administration):

Agreed that a copyright should not be made in your name.  But when you
modify the files from <upstream1> by applying a patch from <upstream2>,
that should be stated somewhere, at least in an accompanying README or
ChangeLog, and/or perhaps better at the beginning of the file itself:
"this is file xxx.c from linenoise, modifying by installing patch ppp
from wherever".

Also, the overall license of the library, including patches, should be
explicitly stated, again in lib/README (at least).

The whole point of all this license stuff we go through is to assure
anyone interested that code they get from Savannah is free software that
can be safely re-used, modified, re-distributed, according to the stated
licenses.  In contrast to most (all?) other repositories, where the
copyright status of most code is unclear and implicit only, at best.
