If you look at the sources of the official repo so-called "The MaNGOS Foundation" you will find it identical to source code of closed repository. And it would be strange for fork not to have these lines with modified copyrights, as they are present in the main repository


The modifed Copyrights by cMangos caused a contamination of the original repo when newer commits were pulled in.

This will be cleaned up shortly (hopefully in the next day or so)
