Hello Benoit, all,

several GNU projects (including autoconf) have moved to Git, is there
any similar plan for automake and libtool?  Is anyone in charge of
this?  Help needed?

Gary has had Libtool stuff in tla somewhere on
<> but has mentioned using git
for it eventually when savannah is ready or has already been using it, I
don't remember.

OK, cool.  Gary, any idea as to when this will happen?

I am still not up to speed with git, but enjoy the
helpful information threads on autoconf and bug-gnulib lists. It would
really help me if at least a read-only CVS mirror is kept for a (long)
while, because anoncvs checkouts do turn up on rarely-used systems.

Well yeah, of course when I talked about "migration to Git", it includes all the git-cvsserver stuff that gnulib, autoconf and others have setup to allow read-only CVS access.

For Automake, Alexandre should be asked; FWIW my position is the same as
for Libtool; but note that Automake CVS is currently not hosted on

Uh. I've always done `cvs -z3 - d:pserver:address@hidden:/sources/automake co .` to fetch automake. Is automake officially hosted at redhat? Or sourceware maybe? I presume this is for historical reasons, but would it be a problem if automake moved to address@hidden + read-only CVS? How are the CVS repositories at Savannah and RH/Sourceware/ whatever sync'ed together?
