Subject: copyright clarification

Hi folks,

a fellow NetBSD developer pointed out to me that several tzcode files
(both code and manual pages) are lacking a copyright statement; while
I personally believe it's safe to treat them as placed in the public
domain too (unless stated otherwise, i.e. strftime.[3c]), from the
project's POV the addition of such a statement to those files would be
appreciated.  (The same possibly applies also to tzdata, any thoughts?)
