Hi folks,

As discussed in last weeks planning meeting we will be updating the copyright notices in all *.java and *.properties files in the 2.1 development stream.

I will carry out the changes later today.  This should have minimal impact since RC2 was declared Friday afternoon and we have been in a test pass since.  I will send another email message just before I begin the changes and just after I am finished.

Essentially the process is:

1) Check EVERYTHING out of HEAD.

2) Update copyrights in all *.java and *.properties files.

3) Commit all changes back to HEAD.

4) Version HEAD and release to the RelEng *.map files.

5) Conduct a test build

6) Perform a binary compare between the *.jar files of the test build and the RC2 build to make sure nothing "real" has changed.

In essence if HEAD, as of now, is NOT what your team had released to RC2 you have to let me know.  This should not be the case, but you never know.

In addition, let me know if there is some reason this should not be done to your files.  As of now, the only files we will NOT be updating are:

       JDT Debug Tests

As the tests themselves require certain items to be on certain line numbers.  The debug team will be updating the files themselves.

The plug-in doing the work will also flag interesting source files such as:

       Files with multiple copyrights.

       Files with multiple commiters


If you have any questions, concerns or recommendations about the above please let me know.
