Hi Alexander,

thanks for trying to fix this, yet I have some doubts.

I think we need some text here. Clicking on a link to understand what a
patch is about is not comfortable. You can add the link with a Link: tag
for additional information.

Removing stale email addresses may have some value, but removing...

... information like this is not good. 'Wayback machine' still has
copies in case someone wants to look at where the infos came from.

This is an OK case in my book...

This is kind of a signature and should be kept IMO.

That information may be useful.

Removing copyright is a bad idea.

Probably some comment blocks are cruft meanwhile and can be removed as a
whole. That can be discussed. But removing only the handhelds.org part
makes most parts worse IMHO.

Thanks and happy hacking,
