Hi Dieter,

so each and every file created should have a copyright notice. Does
that include generated files such as the schema or the migrations?
Also I would need the actual script you want to be included at the top
of the file be it ours or has joint authors.

I am also assuming that this is a low priority task and would be done
in my down time since I donot think this is time sensitive. Once you
give me the actual copyright notice to include I will start adding
them to the necessary files as I go.

Also files that are created by Cakephp already have a copyright notice
should I remove it and replace it with ours that has both authors or
should I modify their copyright notice or should I place our copyright
notice after theirs.

Furthermore as for the issue of empty but copyrighted files I have
here the original app controller file as supplied by cakephp [0] and
here the current state of the file [1]. should this file still be
under joint copyright. I think this is the only one which has changed
so radically but there are others that are empty but copyrighted
however I havent changed them yet
