adding swing-dev which is the correct list for this Swing change.

It looks like a faithful backout of

except that the (c) year is remaining 2020 .. which I think just
indicates the silliness of all these (c) updates since the only
changes to these files in 2020 were those which you have now backed out.

So I think you should revert the (c) changes as well.

If some one else comes along and updates all files in JDK with updates 
in 2020
and so re-adds it then that is their problem ...
