Hi Stefan,

I'm looking at your Happy New Year commit, and wonder about the rational
behind not listing years the source was not changed;

  - * Copyright (c) 2000-2001,2003 The Apache Software Foundation.  All
rights
  + * Copyright (c) 2000-2001,2003-2004 The Apache Software Foundation.  All
rights

Even though there was no modification of a particular file, that doesn't
mean the file is not copyrighted. And Such a scheme will eventually grow
to yield valid long and ugly looking lines for the copyright years.

Why not simply use (inception year)-(last modification year), 2000-2004
in this particular case?

Happy New Year to you too ;-) --DD
