I'm inclined to apply this patch in a couple of days; the attachment is
intentionally munged because it includes a large number of email
addresses.  Please speak up if you have a different preferred address, or
if you don't want a raw address listed in the resulting file.  Also, speak
up if I accidentally omitted your name, but you have reason to be listed.

And for those who aren't aware, I guess this patch serves as announcement
that I was recently named a co-maintainer of autoconf.  I hope to go
through a backlog of recent patch postings, and once we get direction on
the GPLv3+ exception clause, to release Autoconf 2.62.
