Chef clients writing out all config files anew as of midnight Jan 01

Is anyone else seeing their chef client writing out new copies of
every template as of midnight of the new year Jan 1? It’s causing a
lot of services to restart that have no need to.

Mostly Chef 10.0 clients.

Confirmed all templates

Confirmed all templates are getting rewritten with 10.8 clients too.
This is a pretty nasty bug as it's causing all of our Chef-managed
services to restart.

Figured it out. It's our fault. Some of our templates have a copyright
header that auto-generates the year.
