     1Project naming and copyright attribution:
     2
     3* "The MacPorts Project" is the string that shall be used whereever there's a need to reference our project name, such as in copyright notices.
     4* A developer or contributor is adviced to attribute himself a copyright notice if he/she is contributing a full new source file or a full new feature
     5  to an already existing source file in the "base" component of our repository.
     6* An exception to this rule is our Portfiles, since they are partly meant for human eyes consumption and the boilerplate header comments should be kept
     7  down to a minimum
     8* A copyright notice attributed to our group name, "The MacPorts Project", should also be added to these source files (if not already there) if they're
     9  being uploaded to the "base" component of our repository, since as such they are being contributed to the project.
