Please, update COPYRIGHT.txt: change the year. I know, this is a few "bug" :)

@pekkaklarck pekkaklarck added this to the 3.0.1 milestone Feb 7, 2016
@pekkaklarck pekkaklarck self-assigned this Feb 7, 2016

We may also need to do changes to copyright holders and thus this is a bit bigger task. This situation is a bit unclear at the moment but ought to be clarified soon. Copyright year definitely needs to be updated before 3.0.1 so setting milestone accordingly. Omitting the end date like @lgc-sk proposed is probably a good idea.

@pekkaklarck pekkaklarck changed the title from COPYRIGHT.txt : It's already 2016 to Add Robot Framework Foundation as copyright holder for 2016-> Jun 2, 2016

Nokia doesn't anymore directly support Robot Framework but instead we have Robot Framework Foundation and RF 3.0.1 is the first project sponsored by them. We thus need to change copyrights so that they state:

Copyright 2008-2015 Nokia Networks
Copyright 2016- Robot Framework Foundation

Also need to update docs to mention the Foundation. This includes at least User Guide, robot/ and README.


Copyrights in source code and elsewhere as well as docs about the sponsor updated.
