Start of New Year Procedure
At the start of each new year, the following actions should be performed:
Rotate the ChangeLog file
The current ChangeLog file should be renamed into ChangeLog-YYYY where YYYY is the year that has just passed. A new ChangeLog file should be created, and its contents should contain a reference to the previous ChangeLog. The following should also be preserved at the end of the new ChangeLog, in order to provide the appropriate settings when editing this file with Emacs:
Local Variables: mode: change-log left-margin: 8 fill-column: 74 version-control: never coding: utf-8 End:
Add an entry for the newly created ChangeLog file (ChangeLog-YYYY) in gdb/config/djgpp/fnchange.lst.
- Update the copyright year in the startup message
Update the copyright year in:
file top.c, function print_gdb_version
file gdbserver/server.c, function gdbserver_version
file gdbserver/gdbreplay.c, function gdbreplay_version
Run the copyright.py Python script to add the new year in the copyright notices of most source files. This script has been tested with Python 2.6 and 2.7.
