Well, perhaps: we currently (possibly incorrectly) use date ranges for
years in existing notices; that file didn't actually change in 2006/2007;
and actually the copyright is strictly held by the contributors, not
CollabNet. But otherwise, yes :-)

(The idea that CollabNet holds the copyright to contributions other than
by its employees is a fiction that we've allowed to propagate, but one
that'll hopefully be resolved with the copyright assignment/CLA solution
that I understand the Subversion Corporation is currently progressing.)
