You can change the year - if you change the file for the first time that
year. You could even work out a script. It is also very common to have a
range. But I would not sweat over it. And certainly would agree that using
@year@ gives a bit too much to control to automation.. which is likely to
increase the chance of getting it wrong. (I.e the case where you have a
project which was totally stagnant for 5 years - i.e. not code commits -
and yeat mentions the 2002 in a (c).).
