FSF considers that copyright apply on code greater than 10 lines of code. So, with licence BSD (first version) like, you should write the name of all the autors. From the pratical point of view, it's impossible to do it right. I'm not a laywer but if this requirement is badly fullfill (only maintainer and main coder name are in the files), the licence could became void. It's look like main mainteners owned all the code. So it could became a "weak" point from the legal point of view. The zealot could also came from SCO like compagnies.
