I don't think this is going to be easy. Does dsm maintain this file?
My idea was no he wouldn't... "Maintained by" would be how maintains it
now. Historical info is something for ChangeLogs and cvs logs, not banners,
and not when it's no practical use.
Of course in your example someone would eventually have to clean up that
file (unless the script explicitly watched for user dsm - there aren't that
many names mentioned). There would probably want to also be a NO-MAINTAINER
thing for something which no-one is claiming. That of course will help
people realise where bit-rot is, so this in itself is useful too.
