I agree with Jani. No matter how the decision ends, since I can't help here, I'd
rather not show up in the copyright.

Is there something specific you are asking us to do here?

I have lost the overview, but there was a patch Mauro added a There was my name (Markus Heiser) listed with a
copyright notation.

I guess Mauro picked up some old RFC or an other old patch of
mine from 2016 and made some C&P .. whatever .. ATM I do not have
time to give any support on parsing ABI and I'am not interested
in holding copyrights on a C&P of a old source ;)

Well, the code was basically written by you :-)

It was written to be a script capable of running a generic
script. On that time, my contribution to it was basically
to hardcode it to run "".

Thanks for clarifying.

This came from an old branch where the last change was back in 2017.
It was resurrected due to a discussion at KS ML.

There, the discussion was related to what's left to be converted
to ReST.

While I can't simply remove your copyright, would you be happy
with something like that?

Yes, but basically I share Jani's and Jon's doubts about this solution.
