Description Michal Feix 2005-04-13 00:50:24 UTC
Maybe there is some policy that I don't know about, but I feel, that everything copyrighted with Gentoo Linux should have current year too in all copyright messages. Am I wrong? And things will definitelly look much more "up-to-date" after that change. ;-)

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot Gentoo linux and watch for copyright message
1. Open some of the lates ebuilds files
Actual Results:  
Copyright blablabla XXXX-2004

Expected Results:  
Copyright blablabla XXXX-2005

We can only change the copyright year, when there is a significant change in the particular ebuild.
