I don't know if Steve Sides is on this mailing list but he recently 
submitted a number of bugs requesting that the copyright date be fixed 
up on files modified in 2013. I think there are several thousand files 
that need to be updated. I don't think it is critical to do before the 
jdk9 "split" but something to consider in case it would make live a bit 
easier to get this over with. It would require someone to run the script over all of the repositories and get it 
into master before b120 is tagged and maybe there isn't time for that.
