I saw OSS projects with the list of authors in each file, in the 
boilerplate header.

In other projects like


they resolve more in you way, telling simply

     Copyright (c) 2007-2016 Contributors as noted in the AUTHORS file
     This file is part of libzmq, the ZeroMQ core engine in C++.

Then every year I suspect they have an utility extending the year range.
