I don't remember and I can't find it in the docs :-(

You may have to dig into the source or ask Rene!

Yep I guess they do need license and copyright.

I think the messages are only going to the mailing list at present. I guess
in order of importance we need to fix:

1) Regressions.
2) Coding guidelines violations (min/max/namespaces etc).
3) Missing copyright on source files.
4) Broken links in docs.
5) Everything else :-)

Oh and somewhere into all that, we need to decide whether users will be
building 1.34 with bbv2 or bbv1. If the former then we need a new set of
getting started instructions at a minimum.

If you can instigate some personalised nagging on any of the above and/or
fix anything trivial you come across that would certainly be most welcome
