Description

It's now 2017.

History

#1

Updated by Marcel Telka over 3 years ago

What about to change the current year in the prototypes to something like YYYY to avoid the need for periodic updates of those files?

#2

Updated by Robert Mustacchi over 3 years ago

The goal is to minimize the updates that users have to do when creating new files. As someone who has to do this, I'd rather have the year be right than have to get it right every time.

#3

Updated by Marcel Telka over 3 years ago

You still need to change the <contributor> part in the prototype...

Anyway, please do not forget to update the usr/src/prototypes/README file too.

#4

Updated by Robert Mustacchi over 3 years ago

In general I purposefully do not change the README file because I'm not Garrett. Given that the file is rather significant about what he put into the public domain, it didn't feel right to change it.
