BTW is it really needed to update the copyright year regularly? Even 
though this is automated, it's annyoing for users and developers to 
have such changes in the git history.

What I really don't like when watching diffs is to see 1000 files differ 
because of the copyright year. One other file has a real diff. It also 
increases build time when switching between tags or bisecting.
