<div style="font-size:small">Cool. Do you know if it is *required* to use 'Copyright
2008-Present' in the docs or can we just let it as 'Copyright 2008'?</div>

<div style="font-size:small">&nbsp;</div>

<div style="font-size:small">There has been a lot of inconclusive -- i.e., without legal
background -- discussions among the project members, because it makes maintenance easier if
we don't have to keep updating the year (there are more than a handful of docs in the project).
So, some contributors just suggested make it 2008 and not worry about changing it. I am leaning
towards following the 'Copyright 2008-Present', but don't know if this is really required
for docs.</div>

<div style="font-size:small">I looked for an answer to my question in the legal-discuss
mailing list archives, but didn't find any message directly addressing it. Sorry, if I missed
any message or faq.</div>

<div style="font-size:small">Well, &nbsp;we have an Apache project where a set of
docs (html, xml, and pdf) have copyright notice as below:</div>

<div style="font-size:small">&nbsp;</div>

<div style="font-size:small">Copyright 2008-2013</div>

<div style="font-size:small">&nbsp;</div>

<div style="font-size:small">Those docs are distributed as part of the project. Excuse
me, I know this has been asked many times when it comes to source code, but the copyright
notice of documentation also needs to be updated to the current year?</div>

<div style="font-size:small">Thanks in advance,</div>
