Old/New WordPress File Headers

I compared my old wp-config file to a new one recently, and it looks like the header message had changed, from...

/**
* The base configurations of the WordPress.
*
* This file has the following configurations: MySQL settings, Table Prefix,
* Secret Keys, WordPress Language, and ABSPATH. You can find more information
* by visiting {@link http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php Editing
* wp-config.php} Codex page. You can get the MySQL settings from your web host.
*
* This file is used by the wp-config.php creation script during the
* installation. You don't have to use the web site, you can just copy this file
* to "wp-config.php" and fill in the values.
*
* @package WordPress
*/

...to...

/**
* The base configuration for WordPress
*
* The wp-config.php creation script uses this file during the
* installation. You don't have to use the web site, you can
* copy this file to "wp-config.php" and fill in the values.
*
* This file contains the following configurations:

* @link https://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php

* @package WordPress
*/

Looks a bit better, right? Probably a bit less character too. I also can't believe they had a typo in the first one, it was such a huge platform even then. XD

The old version must be ancient by now. I have no idea in which version they made the change, or if it's gone through more than one revision since then, but two versions at least ten years apart... maybe fun to leave a note before I swap out all these headers for the new. For reference. For historical value. And most importantly: for nostalgia.
