I apologize for the incorrect wording of 'project' versus
'foundation'. I added that line last month (and updated the date this
month) because without it, it seemed to indicate that Apple was
claiming copyright over all work done since 2003... which it obviously
doesn't. I'm not a lawyer, but I do want to give credit where credit
is due, so would this be legally (or atleast "more") correct?
(c) 2003, XFree86 Project, Inc
(c) 2003-2008, Apple, Inc
(c) 2003-2008, X.org Contributors
I could probably leave out Apple since Apple *is* an X.org
contributor, but I'm not sure how that'd go over.
And should that XFree86 line actually be 19XX-2003?
