- you may want to have a different authors list. coz i and leo are the
only developers of this wrapper
- please do not archive the tarball with 'wrapper' directory. instead,
use it as the root dir.
- as i have signed a contract with Sun. Sun and I co-own the copyright
of ibus-sunpinyin.
 the copytright of sunpinyin-logo.png belongs to chumsdock <vorbei at gmail.com>
- i strongly suggest you read debian/copyright in the git repo for the
detailed info of ownership of copyrights of sunpinyin source files.
