Hi Tao,

I believe the policy is it is up to the individual developer. In my case 
I sometimes use an updated copyright year to indicate (to me) that I'm 
happy with that file. What happened here is that one of the files in 
hs25 already had an updated copyright year and hence was not included in 
the generated patch.

Thanks for pointing out the inconsistency in this webrev. I'll fix it 
before pushing.
