You are such an IDIOT!
If i wanted to see my copyright in the file i could add it to each file i

I was just saying that it was bad to base a new file on a old one, copying

sees its the same code with different syntax), then remove the original
authors copyright (dwelch), add his own name, svn delete the old file and add
the new file instead of moving and keeping all copytrights in the
You said you didnt know who wrote the FPU code (after i said that i have
written it and noone can see that because of the deleted history), but you

in the file (and add his name to the new file) or simply keep the history of
the file so everyone can see which part was written by whom.
So the file said it was written by dwelch, while the history showed that it
