Not that I personally care all that much, but I feel a bit uneasy
publishing age and country of citizenship/birth of a lot of people,
some who certainly won't read this message in the next couple of
days if ever.  For example, libtool/THANKS only lists name, email,
and date of paper exchange.  (The assignment papers do not specify
a privacy policy of the FSF, which seems like a bad thing itself.)

Again, thank you and congratulations!
