digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 17317] New: 2.074.0 release candidate does not have updated

https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17317

          Issue ID: 17317
           Summary: 2.074.0 release candidate does not have updated
                    backend license
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P1
         Component: dmd
          Assignee: nobody puremagic.com
          Reporter: joseph.wakeling webdrake.net

The backend has been relicensed under the Boost License (Version 1.0), but the
actual license/copyright statements in the backend code have not been updated
for the prospective 2.074.0 release.

See e.g.:
https://github.com/dlang/dmd/blob/v2.074.0/src/ddmd/backend/blockopt.c
https://github.com/dlang/dmd/blob/v2.074.0-rc1/src/ddmd/backend/blockopt.c

Note: ideally the same change should also be made to the source of the
bootstrap compiler used to build the D frontend.
