Hi Sami,
Good. My preferred approach is to run "make update-copyright"
once per year, typically in the first days of January.  Otherwise,
those of us with
copyright-updating save hooks in our editor are tempted to update them during
the year, piecemeal, as we change selected files.  Doing it all at
once eliminates
that small, recurring annoyance.
