All CI4 files have outdated copyright. - InsiteFX - 01-17-2017

@kilishan

Looking at the latest build files of CI 4 all of the copyright dates are still saying 2016.

These should be updated to 2017 in all CI 4 files.


RE: All CI4 files have outdated copyright. - kilishan - 01-17-2017

You're right, they should. But it's semi-unreleased code. We will get to it at some point.

And we also accept pull-requests. Smile

Hmmm - where are you seeing this? The system/ source files seem to have been updated, as well as the user guide. The only 2016 dates I see are there on purpose, or they are gitignored.

A handful of people will care about security, performance.
Almost nobody cares for actual code changes unless functionality is broken.

But as soon as January 1st comes, somebody is bound to start looking at a single digit in comment sections ...

FYI, unless a file has been modified since the year in question, there's no legal reasons to bump it.


RE: All CI4 files have outdated copyright. - ciadmin - 01-18-2017

@InsiteFX I am not seeing that ... searching for "2016" inside the system folder, I found only one instance, in a comment inside API/XMLFormatter.php.

I did find a number of source files without the copyright/license block.
