Re: [eclipselink-dev] Copyright years style in licence headers.

The recommendation from the Eclipse legal team is to use a comma. Apparently it makes sense to lawyers :-)

Consistency with the rest of the code base is also good.

Hi, all,

In licence headers copyright years for some reason are separated with ‘,’ not with ‘-‘. As for me it’s not common way to specify range of years with ‘,’, usually ‘-‘ is used in this case.

Should I continue with the old style or when I do changes I can use ‘-‘ for range? 

Several my patches are already in. And there I’ve used ‘-‘ style. I can revert this if needed. It’s better to have everywhere the same, correct header.

Best regards.
