ranges can be ok in copyright lines

Item posted by Karl Berry <karl> on Wed Oct 27 17:37:27 2010.

As long as information is not lost, it is now ok to use ranges in copyright years. Specifically: 1) every year in the range, inclusive, really must be a ``copyrightable'' year that would be listed individually; and 2) you make an explicit statement in a @file{README} file about this usage.

http://www.gnu.org/prep/maintain/html_node/Copyright-Notices.html has been updated.
