#2 closed defect (FIXED)

Add appropriate copyright headers to all files / adjust COPYING

Reported by: Christopher Allan Webber Owned by: Will Kahn-Greene
Priority: major Milestone: 0.0.1
Component: Keywords:
Cc: Parent Tickets:


Add / adjust copyright headers on all files.

-  Python files already have appropriate AGPL header, except need
   adjustment to provide exception for HTML (maybe also CSS for the
   sake of clarity?) files. See:
   ` <>`_
   though we will probably need to make some adjustments to that.
-  HTML templates should contain CC0 header. See:
   `\_FAQ#May\_I\_apply\_CC0\_to\_computer\_software.3F\_If\_so.2C\_is\_there\_a\_recommended\_implementation.3F <>`_
-  Move COPYING to AGPLv3.txt
-  Download
-  Create a new COPYING which describes that python code is under
   AGPLv3 (AGPLv3.txt) w/ exception for HTML templates, Javascript
   under AGPLv3 w/ exception for HTML, and HTML templates / images /
   CSS of base theme all under CC0 (CC0\_1.0.txt)

If we end up having CSS files by the time this is written we should
also add headers to these, but do this in the style listed at the
bottom of this post:
` <>`_

Here's an update.

-  We're waiting for an email from Brett with his thoughts on the
   text we're using.
-  The documentation (everything under docs/) will be under a CC0
   license including code snippets, templates, and static assets.
-  When we add branding assets to the repository for both the
   software and the documentation, we'll license them differently--but
   we're kicking that can down the road until it's an issue.

I have a lot of this work sitting on my computer. When things get
resolved, I'll check it all in.
