The source code repository was migrated from CVS to GIT but the old CVS $Id lines are still present in source files. Those lines are associated with a user id and date, so change them to be Copyright lines. If they do not otherwise have some kind of license information, use some kind of short form reference of the overall gico (BSD) license. Can use the user id as a reference to who did the last change to the file but may need to review the commits to check for any others.
