Unfortunately they can't be automagically updated.  Technically it has to
be done only when we check-in copyright-significant changes, and there's no
automated way to test that.

It's not such a big deal, but it's good to send a reminder from time to time,
so people (me included! ;-)) keep it in mind.

  still allow you to remove your data and not access it at all."
