Did I miss something? You and I are the original two people that worked
on this idea and generated the standard ReactOS header, after which I
asked someone to replace it all over the ntoskrnl and other places
except wine-libs (he gave up after the kernel though). At the time you
clearly indicated that having
COPYRIGHT: See COPYING file in top-level directory. and
PROGRAMMERS: Foo, Bar, Bez
was sufficient and would make standard headers easier and significantly
reduce disk/bandwidth costs.
