Gmane
From: Bradley M. Kuhn <bkuhn-rbQqYLFhARYurNyw8EiOWEB+6BGkLq7r <at> public.gmane.org>
Subject: [PATCH] ath5k: final correction of copyright notices
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel.wireless.general
Date: Thursday 27th September 2007 22:58:24 UTC (over 10 years ago)
The patch below is for application to the wireless-2.6 ath5k branch, and
takes into account the latest driver directory move and file renames.  I
believe this patch handles all copyright notice issues that SFLC is
currently aware of.  Based on our extensive research (which is summarized
in http://www.softwarefreedom.org/resources/2007/ath5k-code-analysis.html)
we found that the copyright holders below also have a copyright on some
files; the patch below adds their copyright notices.

We encourage future patchers to add their copyright notice (and any
appropriate additional licensing notices as needed) into the files when
they make patches.  We also refer developers to our paper at
http://www.softwarefreedom.org/resources/2007/gpl-non-gpl-collaboration.html
that recommends ways to incorporate permissive-licensed code like this in
a GPL-licensed project like Linux.

We at SFLC were all very happy to do this work for the Linux Wireless team
and are glad that a favorable outcome for all was reached.


I believe I've used all the patch-submission tags correctly based on
previous discussions and email exchanges with everyone involved, but I
obviously don't patch the kernel often (er, at all :), so if I've made a
mistake, please let me know.
