In files that someone else wrote and I just added stuff (these are the vast majority of my patches), I can't claim "the" copyright, can I? Or maybe I can claim a copyright for the few lines of mine, but then I'm not sure how to word it. Maybe I should just say "This and that added by magnum 2012" and nothing more? There's also files like para-best.sh which is a new file but is a 95% copy of best.sh which is your file. Not sure how to word a statement there. I do like to keep it short but it's more of not knowing what to write in these cases. magnum
