You can in principle ADD
Copyright 2015 Boost.Test contributors
to each file and then update it to reflect the current year, so it becomes
Copyright 2015-2017 Boost.Test contributors
in 2017, but you can't remove the existing lines.
Some projects do use copyright assignments of the above form.
In practice maintaining the copyright assignments is not that hard (compared
to maintaining the code). That's because copyright is only claimed for
changes meeting a certain threshold of originality.
