Thanks for the feedback.

I checked in the following changesets to use "The Octave Developers" for copyright notices in most source files and to update the copyright year for those to 2020:


As stated in the commit message for the first changesetI skipped most of the files in the directories


I'm not sure what to do with the copyright and authorship of the Octave manual and, although we have modified some of them, the files in the other directories are mostly imported from elsewhere so I don't know that we should place the Octave copyright on them.

I used a script to generate the initial COPYRIGHT.md file. I'm not sure that it's necessary to add it to the hg archive, but I can share it if there is interest.

Comments and further suggestions?
