I should probably have suggested a correction in my bug report, but couldn't decide on something while writing it, so I didn't. Now I would suggest Copyright 1996-1999 Ian Jackson, Christian Schwarz, X, Y, Z where X, Y, and Z are additional people who have written enough text included in the policy manual that they can claim a copyright for their part. That is: - lose the (c) since it is not a valid substitute the copyright symbol © (it's common, but not really valid; on the other hand, the word "Copyright" is enough on it's own) - fix the year to include this year (and, for updates made next year, fix the years to include next year) - add people by name, since this is much simpler than assigning copyrights to an organization and also gives "gift society credit points" directly to those who deserve them; a mailing list is not a legal entity and can't own a copyright -- Stupid little mailer under construction, sorry for any problems.
