OK. I have started updating the copyright notices in my last commit. It's
not a big deal, but we will forget it all the time.

I guess the best thing is to do a sweep right before a major release,
comparing last committed date with the copyright year and updating if
necessary. Would that be a sufficient solution?

Thanks for getting this question clarified at last,
