There is very little code from these people left in this
manual, if any.  The authorship should reflect that or
eventual contributors my shy away.

On the Internals manual, at some point, it read:

First edition:
Some name
Second Edition:
Stan Shebs

I would like to see it free of names completely.
Free Software Foundation and Cygnus Solutions (a RedHat company)
would be a nice solution.

I guess we need a lawyer...
