What is the policy of updating year in copyright notices?
There are several pages (, , ) where copyright notice is
explained, but without any notes on the year detail
I found one thread  about copyright policy, but it discusses
only copyrighting patches and fixes.
I understand it may depend on local law in particular country,
(i.e. it seems U.S. requires year ).
However, without digging law backgrounds, I'd simply like to know what
is Boost policy for the notice updates.
For example, a file created in 2009 includes relevant copyright notice
and in 2013 the file receives update.
Is it required to update the copyright year to 2009-2013?
