Are you certain you really want to declare header copyright+licensing?!?

Hi Jonas,

if it is not breaking any rules I would keep it.

Why do you want to keep it?

My question was (and still is) if you are aware what it is you declare?


there is not any year for Eric who is current upstream maintainer.
Any idea which year I should give to his name? 2011? Or just keep it like it is?

I'd say be accurate - i.e. keep as-is if there is no more info, but also don't invent info that does not exist!

Better yet: Contact upstream and ask for clarification. I believe that in some jurisdictions (particularly in the US) a legal disclaimer is not binding if it lacks years of claimed coverage. Upstream may appreciate a friendly notice on improvements to their legal hints.


 - Jonas
