Hi Roger,

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.

 > Can the latest copyright date be taken from the File-Date field of 
the subtag-registry?
This may not be necessarily same as the year in which lsr data is 
updated in jdk.
