These days the guideline encourage updating all files, even ones that
haven't changed, so I was hoping we could do that gcc-wide.  The idea of
sending per-directory patches was to vet the output of the update script
so that hopefully we can use it again next year with a bit less fuss.
So in a way, an "OK" to this patch would be an OK to add 2014 in 2014,
etc.

It sounds like you'd prefer we didn't do that, which is certainly OK with me.
We can always add libdecnumber to the list in future if things change.

Thanks,
Richard
