Re: Years in copyright notices

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.

What is a "small change", 3-4 lines changed?  And do many small changes
eventually become a big change that needs to change the year?

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

Is it enough to compare the file now with the version for the previous
year and count changed and added lines, or is a more manual comparison
