Why the leading spaces?

Will we just have all files as 1999-2004 or do we need to
determine the actual first and last modification date of
each file? The latter is an awful lot of work, but if we
need to do it then there are some tools in the CVS module
"committers/tools" which might help.

Obviously the boilerplate for *.xml etc. will be different
comment markers.

Actually i have noticed a trend that people are focussing
on the *.java files only (see the current scripts in
"committers/relicense") and are forgetting the big job
of every other text file.

I think that the Stefano entry should not have special treatment
at the top, but rather be one entry in the list that would follow,
presumably the first entry.

I suppose so, and in both *.java and *.xml
