    Correct license headers?

    Yong Hao Gao Master

      I made a quick survey of the source files and found some of the source files have license header issues.


      Some haven't a licence header at all, like




      Some have Copyright 2010 while a few others have Copyright 2009


      Some have a different license like



      * JBoss, Home of Professional Open Source.

      * Copyright 2010, Red Hat, Inc., and individual contributors

      * as indicated by the @author tags. See the copyright.txt file in the

      (for example hornetq-ra/hornetq-ra-jar/src/main/java/org/hornetq/ra/recovery/RecoveryManager.java)



      I'd like to do some clean up to make sure every source files have a proper licence header. But I'm not sure


      1) Which is the correct copyright year? 2010, 2009, or 2012?

      2) Are all of our source code under same license ?
