Reported by William Martin, Apr 1, 2011

We need to update most of file to have a proper Copyright
Actually, we can find

Copyright (C) 2010 Céondo Ltd and contributors.
Copyright (C) 2008 Céondo Ltd and contributors.

It's a boring job, but i can update all the file with a sed script. 
We just need to have to right patter for the date. I thinks is 
"2008 - 2011".

I'm not a lawyer, but does a copyright actually "outdate" 
just because a new year begins?

I mean, if somebody installs an older (say 2009'ish) version of IDF, 
he'll find old copyrights from at most 2009 in the code. This 
doesn't make the copyright any softer, though, does it?

Sure its just a while loop and a sed command, but still...

For software with several releases over multiple years, it's okay to 
use a range (“2008-2010”) instead of listing individual years 
(“2008, 2009, 2010”) if and only if every year in the range, 
inclusive, really is a “copyrightable” year that would be listed 
individually; and you make an explicit statement in your 
documentation about this usage.

commit 5ea4b02205824e094b1efa3e706a37ce5559bc4b

Two files are under 'Plume Framework' copyright, is it normal ?
- src/IDF/Form/Field/EmailList.php
- src/IDF/Scm/Monotone/ZipRender.php

Comment 4 by Thomas Keller, Apr 2, 2011

The latter file is from Patrick and me and possibly got this wrong 
license by accident. Feel free to correct it.

Comment 5 by William Martin, Apr 3, 2011

Loic, what about the first file ?
- src/IDF/Form/Field/EmailList.php
