Re: Suggestion for copyright file header.

I recall reading somewhere that it's acceptable to place a single copy
of the license along with the code, instead of spamming every file
with ridiculous lawyer jargon. If that's the case, I'd _much_ rather
do it that way.

The current copyright header indicates that the product was developed
by IBM. =)

  

Can we use this one instead:

  

/*

 * file: SVNDecoratorConfiguration.java

 * package: org.tigris.subversion.subclipse.ui.decorator

 *

 * This program and the accompanying materials are made available under

 * the terms of the Common Public License v1.0 which accompanies this

 * distribution, and is available at the following URL:

 * http://www.eclipse.org/legal/cpl-v10.html

 *

 * Copyright(c) 2003-2005 by the authors indicated in the @author tags.

 * All Rights are Reserved by the various authors.

 *

 ########## DO NOT EDIT ABOVE THIS LINE ########## */

  

This can be easily done with an editor template. Map "header" to the following:

  

/*

 * file: ${file}

 * package: ${enclosing_package}

 *

 * This program and the accompanying materials are made available under

 * the terms of the Common Public License v1.0 which accompanies this

 * distribution, and is available at the following URL:

 * http://www.eclipse.org/legal/cpl-v10.html

 *

 * Copyright(c) 2003-2005 by the authors indicated in the @author tags.

 * All Rights are Reserved by the various authors.

 *

########## DO NOT EDIT ABOVE THIS LINE ########## */

  

Then all you have to do is type "header" and hit ctrl-space.
