Interpreting from earlier guidance, things should only ever have
been "Copyright OpenStack Foundation" if they were created by
staff/contractors of the foundation *or* previously copyrights owned
by Rackspace under the "OpenStack, LLC." moniker (2012 and prior)
for which ownership was officially transferred to the foundation.

As far as existing copyright statements are concerned, that would
technically be up to representatives of the foundation to update,
and as far as I'm aware the OpenStack Foundation still exists (with
something like a "doing business as" Open Infrastructure Foundation)
so there's no legal urgency to update copyright statements at this
time. The foundation staff are engaged currently in inventorying
legal documents which need updating, and will likely provide
guidance about lower priority items such as copyright statements in
the coming months.

Further discussion is likely more on topic for either the foundation
or openstack-legal mailing lists.
