Sure.  I've had several requests for this recently.

One question is what to name the release.  This is more of a problem
than you might think.

`1.4.1' is an alpha release by our rules.
But I don't want it to be `1.5'.
Maybe we'll have to change the rules.
I've been meaning to change them anyway so that modified versions can
be given a name like `1.4-foobar'.

I think there are 3:

* the copy bug you mention
* the missing `d' bug in `make dist'
* the missing `$' bug in

These three seem to be reported frequently.
Check the recent bug-automake archives to see the last two patches.
The `d' patch is reported a lot -- more than once a month.
