Ticket #790 (closed enhancement: wontfix)
Make cabal check warn if copyright field doesn't have current year
|Reported by:||guest||Owned by:|
Quite a few packages being uploaded on Hackage have 2010 as the copyright year, probably because developers forgot to update the year. As an example, see http://hackage.haskell.org/package/turni-2011.1.15 which was uploaded in 2011, but puts the copyright as 2010 (that's just the first I encountered, but there are loads).
I suggest cabal check should warn if copyright doesn't have the current year in the field.
