## bifurcated copyright for etc/*.tex files

 From: Thien-Thi Nguyen Subject: bifurcated copyright for etc/*.tex files Date: 16 Aug 2005 07:45:44 -0400 User-agent: Gnus/5.09 (Gnus v5.9.0) Emacs/21.2

for the etc/*.tex files, i would like to update the copyright
notice in the comments w/ the full list of years, and the
rendered copyright notice w/ 2005, only.  for example:

% Copyright (C) 1997, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005 FSF, Inc.
...
\def\year{2005}

the rationale is that for reference cards and such, a big (and
ever-increasing) list of years is unnecessary clutter.

what do you think of this (idea A)?

another approach is to allow sequence-compression in the
rendered notice, while keeping the comment fully expanded,
like so:

% Copyright (C) 1997, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005 FSF, Inc.
...
\def\year{1997, 2002--2005}

what do you think of this (idea B)?
