            I think the remaining major question is what the COPYRIGHT file looks like. There's some text about this in the RFC description, but a sample would be good to look at. I think we did decide that something generic like "LSST DM Participating Institutions" is insufficient, unfortunately.

            The confusion on this topic continues so it would be great if we could finally write the plan into the developer guide. Our files are a mess at the moment.

            I was pondering having a crack at it today whilst I'm waiting for some butler code to be reviewed.

            Tim Jenness go for it. One thing I'd like to see is a list of the legal names for each DM institution that can claim copyright. And a comment on whether very old code was in fact legally copyrighted by the LSST Corporation.

            Wil O'Mullane or John Swinbank can you please take a look at these changes to copyright? Since they have an impact on who owns and licenses code I need approval from DM management.
