What if upstream does not provide this information? I'm helper of the
jed-extra package that includes a collection of scripts for the editor
jed. They are collected at http://jedmodes.sourceforge.net/. Many of
them do not include any information about the year anybody did work on
them. What to do in this case? Can we pack them or is it a risk?
