I hate to have to bring these kind of things onto the list. Our legal department has gone through the licenses in the header files and have issues with two modules - dynamic_bitset and preprocessor. Both cases are related to the fact that below the copyright message lines such as
// With optimizations, bug fixes, and improvements by Gennaro Prota.
# /* Revised by Paul Mensonides (2002) */
appear. They have an issue with the fact in both cases the person in question did not add an additional copyright message. Now, I am at odds and ends here as I am not a legal expert, but I am of the opinion that the legal department is wrong in this case. Can someone shed some light on this?
