There is one caveat: you should check with
your employer (if any), whether he is OK if you do not update the copyright
date when you change a file.

Requirement to update the copyright end year has been
dropped Sent by:
Friends of the Eclipse platform,
Today the PMC decided that it is not mandatory that to update the copyright header anymore to the Eclipse Top Level project. You still can do it, if you prefer to do it.
IMHO these are great news to get rid of this time wasting requirement for committers and contributors. This should reduce further the level of frustration during code contributions to platform UI.
Also the existing committers which are already ignoring this requirement, can finally do it officially. ;-)
Best regards, Lars
