Bot Written Warning
A bot written warning refers to a documentation block that is present at the start of any file written by the bot.
/* * @bot-written * * WARNING AND NOTICE * Any access, download, storage, and/or use of this source code is subject to the terms and conditions of the * Full Software Licence as accepted by you before being granted access to this source code and other materials, * the terms of which can be accessed on the Codebots website at https://codebots.com/full-software-licence. Any * commercial use in contravention of the terms of the Full Software Licence may be pursued by Codebots through * licence termination and further legal action, and be required to indemnify Codebots for any loss or damage, * including interest and costs. You are deemed to have accepted the terms of the Full Software Licence on any * access, download, storage, and/or use of this source code. * * BOT WARNING * This file is bot-written. * Any changes out side of "protected regions" will be lost next time the bot makes any changes. */
This warning denotes ownership of the file by the bot. The bot will ignore any file which does not have this warning provided the file path does not overlap with a file that is owned by the bot.
Any file without the bot written warning is owned by the human developer and can, as a result, be updated, modified, renamed, copied and deleted without consideration of the bot, with the exception of how it fits into the application as a whole.
Warning: If you ever copy a bot-written file, delete the warning from the top. The codebot will delete any file with a bot-written warning that it did not write.
