In the attached patch, I updated the copyright year to 2017 at places it was mentioned until 2016.

There was a suggestion that we remove the copyright line of Python Software Foundation from module headers since the code is already covered 1) by top level copyright mention, 2) The mention of copyright is inconsistent in modules, 3) will avoid unnecessary churn every year. 

This idea needs to be vetted by PSF Board and legal staff.

Any update about this? 
Who do we need to talk to in order to move forward?

Van, could you take a look at Senthil & Mariatta's questions above regarding our handling of the copyright year in CPython's module headers?

Found while sleuthing random issues. Can we close this?
