Please take some effort into trying to make clear what the confusion
is for you.

   false --> It is recommended and simpler to add the new year to all
   files in the package, and be done with it for the rest of the year.

That is what the GNU Coding Standards say, so it clearly is not "false".

If you add a new file, from a different project, which was not updated

this year, then you would add 2018 in your new copy of that file.
Adding a new file is a signitificant enough modification that it would
warrant updating the copyright years for _all_ files in the project;
including newly added ones.
