You could ask the FSF (email copyright-cleark - using fsf dot org
as the domain), and the answer would be interesting to everyone.
It would give us a better understanding of what the important factor
is. Is it the time of first writing, time of first release (define
release). Making changes seem to be the important factor, at least
as far as adding copyright years is concerned.
For now, I would leave 2011. I think it's been the current practice
(certainly, it's been mine). I don't know how important it is, but
it affects when older versions might theoretically go into the public
