Subject: [boost] Two minor (?) legal-related questions (empty lines and "Boost sponsorship")

Hi guys,

the "how to apply to source files" entry at


asks to leave an empty line before and after the comment block
which contains copyright notice and license reference. I'm
wondering if that was an advice from the lawyers who wrote the
license or just a stylistic preference.

Also, I just saw a BoostSponsorshipAgreement.pdf in the more/
subdirectory. What is it?
