First off let me say that I meant no offense by removing the author from the header files, I was told that authors belonged in the cpp file and not the headers. The authors names are listed in the corresponding cpp files Secondly, as far as the MIT license goes, it is legal to strip off everything except the copyright notice and MIT license itself. So, is there a consensus here, should authors names be repeated in the header files or not?
