netatalk-3.1.7 ships rc.suse.tmpl, which no longer contains that sentence.

However I found a couple of files with similar sentences and no further licensing:


Those say:

 * Copyright (c) 1997 Adrian Sun (asun at zoology.washington.edu)
 * All rights reserved.

Everything else is either appropriately licensed, generated file, or contains no
claims at all.
