Copyright year is updated on build
Description of problem:
Copyright year is updated on build (in configure)
Version of gnutls used:
Distributor of gnutls (e.g., Ubuntu, Fedora, RHEL)
Steps to Reproduce:
- build gnutls from scratch in current year and a later year (can use
qemu -rtc base=)
- compare binaries
building today's version in 2025 produces
Copyright (C) 2000-2025 Free Software Foundation, and others
and differs from a binary built today.
Software builds should be reproducible. See https://reproducible-builds.org/ for why this matters.
