Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-5467) Copyright notice in the API documentation (generated by the Javadoc tool) is outdated
Date Mon, 17 Oct 2011 13:23:10 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5467?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13128857#comment-13128857

Rick Hillegas commented on DERBY-5467:
--------------------------------------

Thanks for catching this, Kristian. I think that the end year in the copyright notice should
be changed to be the ${copyright.year} variable. That variable is updated when the release
manager builds a release candidate. IANAL but I don't think we will lose any legal protections
if we automatically update the end year even when nothing visible has changed. Thanks.

> The ending year in the copyright notice used in the API documentation hasn't been updated.
Currently the year 2007 or 2008 is being used.
> Manually modifying the copyright notice is trivial, but has to be done once a year. It
may be possible to automate this (i.e. use current year, or the year of the last change in
the code repository?).
> Out of curiosity, should the year be updated even if no changes have been made? (somewhat
relevant if we decide to automate the update)
