Now that it's 2009, should we update copyright years in our files?
- does it matter?
- what is the rule? what does it even mean?
For what it's worth, the FSF policy is that when a file gets modified,
you need to add the additional copyright year.
This is important -- you are indicating that you have written
something for each year listed. Otherwise, a blanket copyright (e.g.
2000-2009) could be contested because you did not actually modify the
file in 2002.
Hope that helps,
