I'm not sure but author/translator, copyright holder, license
issuer aren't always the same in certain countries if I recall
correctly, and I'd like to avoid copyright/license hell.

As one of translators, I've been recognizing me of one of
credits, but having change the PO headers, I saw some state
his/her own copyright in that files, that can be problem later
as I forced them changed, but that's my call...

Anyway, who does treat judicial affairs in Xfce, Oliver? probably
there must be a jurist in this list.
