CLDR converter generate the copyright year by the current date in which
it is getting executed. I think the copyright year in
LocaleEquivalentMaps.java should be the year in which the lsr data is
last updated in jdk i.e. the year in which LocaleEquivalentMaps.java is
last modified. This makes it difficult to compute the year automatically
unless someone specifies it while updating the data.

This may not be necessarily same as the year in which lsr data is
updated in jdk.
