NAME

Dist::Zilla::Plugin::CopyrightYearFromGit - Set copyright year from git

VERSION

This document describes version 0.006 of Dist::Zilla::Plugin::CopyrightYearFromGit (from Perl distribution Dist-Zilla-Plugin-CopyrightYearFromGit), released on 2019-10-24.

SYNOPSIS

In dist.ini:

 [CopyrightYearFromGit]

DESCRIPTION

This plugin will set copyright year to something like:

 2017, 2015, 2014, 2013

where the years will be retrieved from 1) the date of git tags that resemble version string (qr/^(version|ver|v)?\d/); 2) current date; and will be listed in descending order in a comma-separated list. This format is commonly used in books, where the year of each revision/edition is mentioned, e.g.:

 Copyright (c) 2013, 2010, 2008, 2006 by Pearson Education, Inc.

CONFIGURATION

min_year

Instruct the plugin to not include years below this year. Note that the current year will always be used, even though min_year is (incorrectly) set to a value larger than the current year.

release_tag_regex

Specify a custom regular expression for matching git release tags.

An old alias regex is still recognized, but deprecated.

author_name_regex

Only consider release commits where author name matches this regex.

author_email_regex

Only consider release commits where author email matches this regex.
