Patch for references to "19yy" in COPYING

Joseph S. Myers jsm28@cam.ac.uk
Sun Dec 17 15:20:00 GMT 2000


The GPL used to have a Y2K problem in its example copyright notices
(giving a year 19yy as an example).  The current version on
ftp.gnu.org fixes this; this patch updates the copies in the GCC
distribution (except those in texinfo, since the proposed removal of
texinfo is awaiting review).  OK to commit?

[CC:ed to libstdc++ and Java lists, since they have some of the old copies
of COPYING.  The copy in fastjar is already fixed.]
