So if I wanted to send in a patch that creates a new source file in Snort,
what's the proper copyright assignment?  Dual-copyright to 2014
Cisco/SourceFire/affiliates and myself (w/ year), or assign full copyright
to Cisco/SourceFire/affiliates, insert an "Author" line or other such
acknowledgement for myself, or just go full anonymity and an entry in the

Can't find a good reference for this, neither in the Snort manual nor via
Google, save a very similar question asked back in 2003 on this topic.
