I don't have a problem with this except the copyright part. I just wrote
a public email a couple of days ago saying how wrong "ReactOS Team"
is...did you read it? I'll restate:
1) ReactOS Team is not a legal entity, it cannot be assigned copyright.
2) Replacing that by ReactOS Foundation (a legal entitity) is not
correct since I'm not aware of any developer that has (yet) submitted
his work under the Foundation's copyright.
