#1

Updated by Junxiao Shi almost 7 years ago

  • Subject changed from Update year in copyright notices to Update year 2015 in copyright notices
  • Category set to Build
  • Estimated time set to 1.00 h

README-dev.md should be updated as part of this Task.

I'm unsure about whether it's necessary to update ALL files.

I don't see other open source projects do that.

According to this tweet, only files changed in this year need to contain new copyright year.

I can go either way. You refused to update the copyright year on the pending task, which triggered creation of this issue. I'm fine updating files as we modify them.

#3

Updated by Junxiao Shi almost 7 years ago

Within this Task:

  • update README-dev.md with the new template
  • update all files that are already modified in 2015

After this commit is merged, all future updated files must carry the new template.

#4

Updated by Alex Afanasyev almost 7 years ago

  • Status changed from New to In Progress
  • Assignee set to Alex Afanasyev

I intend to modify template to exclude specific mentioning of the year or copyright holders. README-dev cannot force any single copyright, it can only suggest the format of the copyright message.

#5

Updated by Junxiao Shi almost 7 years ago

If README-dev.md only gives a format,

  1. create a wiki page where the most current license boilerplate is maintained, so that developers only need to copy from this page
  2. cite this wiki page from README-dev.md

  • Status changed from In Progress to Code review
  • % Done changed from 0 to 100
#7

Updated by Junxiao Shi almost 7 years ago

A question about copyright holder section is raised during code review, and is currently being discussed on nfd-dev.
A decision on this question is needed before this Task can proceed.

#8

Updated by Alex Afanasyev almost 7 years ago

  • Status changed from Code review to In Progress
  • % Done changed from 100 to 90

I'll keep this issue open until the 0.3 release (I'm sure we will forget to update some files).

#9

Updated by Junxiao Shi over 6 years ago

  • Status changed from In Progress to Closed
  • % Done changed from 90 to 100

note-8 condition is fulfilled.
