As your mail is.

Honestly, if you cant deal with listing the Authors/(C) holders - dont
maintain a package. It is not much work to list them. (It might be a lot
of work using the "new" format, but noone *requires* this format, especially
not ftpmaster. It has *no* gain for us at all, we couldnt care less if
you use it or not).
