`(maintain) Copyright Notices' says:

   To update the list of year numbers, add each year in which you have
   made nontrivial changes to the package.  (Here we assume you're
   using a publicly accessible revision control server, so that every
   revision installed is also immediately and automatically
   published.) ...

So I think it is the date on which the _overall version_ is published,
ie for us the date it gets pushed to staging, or the date it gets
published by the submitter as a git branch (if sooner).  But I doubt
this really matters very much.
