The following must be used in both the page-level and class-level docblocks. Of course, change "PackageName" to the name of your package. This ensures the generated documentation links back your package.
There's no hard rule to determine when a new code contributor should be added to the list of authors for a given source file. In general, their changes should fall into the "substantial" category (meaning somewhere around 10% to 20% of code changes). Exceptions could be made for rewriting functions or contributing new logic.
Simple code reorganization or bug fixes would not justify the addition of a new individual to the list of authors.
This tag is required when a file or class is added after the package's initial release. Do not use it in an initial release.
This tag is required when a file or class is no longer used but has been left in place for backwards compatibility.
