I don't see anything like that in echangelog. What would be the point of
re-writing copyright start dates, when those should already be correctly
inherited from skel.ChangeLog anyway?

Sure, but this is mainly intended for ebuilds and files (like init
scripts?), I guess. I considered using skel.ebuild for .ebuild files,
perhaps that's just the best to avoid hardcoding any years.

Well, repoman only creates ChangeLog files, not ebuilds or other files.
So, how is skel.ebuild relevant? Shouldn't repoman assume that the
existing copyright start date is correct in ebuilds and other files?
