I say we just include the software license. We don't need every
copyright notice because we know that all of the files are licensed
under the Boost Software License, and that is what's important. If
someone wants to know exactly who owns the copyright on what, they can
always look at the source.
Policy is not very clear on this point. But if you look for example at
the copyright file for the kernel packages, it just gives one
copyright notice, although there are many different ones in different
source files in the kernel.
