Hi all,

I got a PR from a contributor who prefers to remain anonymous. The person
created new files and instead of putting a real name, the person added just
initials. I am talking to the person to see whether they can be convinced
to give a real name.

Any advice on how to handle this? My feeling is that a copyright notice
without a real name is illegal.

I could publish the code in my name, but then a documented transfer of
copyright from the contributor to me is missing, which then puts me in a
vulnerable position.

Any thoughts?

Best regards,
