Re: [VOTE] Promote Configuration to Commons ProperSo, what is the deal with
copyright, everytime it changes we need to update the date?  I don't think
anyone pays attention to it on a day to day basis..  Sounds like we need
something like a maven plugin that checks each file, and if it has changed
post whatever the copyright date is, then updates it...

  Actually the copyright doesn't end in 2002 but starts in 2002, it's then
  valid for the lifetime of the author plus a minimum of 50 years after
  his death according to the Berne Convention.

  You are right though that some content submitted or modified this year
  doesn't have a copyright assigned in 2003.
