    Updating copyright notice is as useless as the gnu license note itself 
    in all files. If we are serious about the copyright notice, we should 
    also be serious about the dates. I don't understand why we should state 
    in all the files that they were modified in 2014, if they actually were 

Our lawyer said to list, in each file of Emacs, the years in which
Emacs (as a whole) was modified nontrivially.  Once Emacs is modified
nontrivially in 2014, that list of years should include 2014.
