Please do not change the copyright line if the code was actually taken from a FSF copyrighted project. If it was, then the copyright line for the FSF, and the two authors should be listed. Something like this:

Yes, of course I would not remove a valid copyright line. The jfs
translator code was partly taken from the GPL'ed, IBM-copyrighted JFS
implementation for Linux. So I'll leave the (c) IBM. But I think Sajith
and John put the Copyright (c) FSF line without signed papers, so that'd
be merely correcting the line to match reality. Do you think it's OK?
