Description Michael Fulbright 2002-07-17 16:59:23 EDT
The copyright at the bottom of the yelp browser makes it look like this Mikael
Hallendal wrote all of GNOME and should not be there, or at least tweaked.
Comment 1 Mikael Hallendal 2002-07-30 04:11:57 EDT
I didn't? :)

Seriously, I'd be happy to change that string, I've asked for something else to
put there but haven't got any suggestions, please feel free to send me a

There reason it's there is that Jimmac (who did the art-work for that page) had
put (C) GNOME Foundation, which is an invalid Copyright, so I changed it into
something that was valid.
Comment 2 Alexander Larsson 2002-08-07 06:14:05 EDT
Does there have to be a copyright notice at all?
What is copyrighted? The index page?
Comment 3 Mikael Hallendal 2002-08-07 06:35:52 EDT
No it doesn't, but if we want the GNOME2-logo there it looks really odd with
only one line of text :)

I guess we could just remove the lot and be happy with it.
Comment 4 Mikael Hallendal 2002-08-07 17:08:07 EDT
I've removed all the text and the icon from HEAD (will be in GNOME 2.2). I'm not
sure that people would like if I removed it in the 2.0.X branch. I guess you
guys can patch it to be removed.
Comment 5 Alexander Larsson 2002-08-12 10:23:31 EDT
Fixed in 1.0.2-2. I just took mikaels patch from HEAD and applied it to 1.0.2.
