Besides this being a minor and certainly non-blocker issue, a similar question 
came up just last week on legal-discuss@ where the question was if every 
copyright statement would need to be 'bumped' to adjust for the new year. Greg 
Stein provided IMO a nice and clear (follow up) answer about the importance of 
how and when to do this [3]:

   Actually, the shorter answer is "get it close, but don't worry about it."
  (per a lawyer friend of mine)

   What you put in the header is advisory. If you end up in court, it has zero
   impact compared to the actual commit history that demonstrates it is your
   work. "Your work" is the operative issue; not when you happened to do that
   work."

So I see no reason at all to worry about these now.

And, for the record, none of the NOTICE files in this release themselves were 
modified since 2011.
