Re: Years in copyright notices

    What is the exact policy concerning copyright years?  I see that some
    people update the copyright years when they make changes, but
    apparently most people do not.  Are copyright years automatically
    updated from CVS data when a release is made?

We need to update the copyright years for all the files.

One reason we don't always add a year when making a change is that we
don't add a year when only small changes are made during that year.
That means that people making small changes in a file often don't
check to see whether the changes in the current year are enough to
justify adding the year.

Does anyone want to help in this process of adding the years
that should be added?
