I know we've talked about this in the past (perhaps you weren't here
for those conversations, Malcolm), but changing copyright years when
the file or project hasn't substantively changed is a bad idea. Plus,
technically, it's only supposed to be the year of first publication
not the most recent one.

Can we please get the SVN Corp Board to deal with this definitively?

Thanks! -- justin
