I'm happy to read this :-)

Debian's attitude is perfectly understandable here, since the package is
still at an alpha status, and hasn't seen any release or pre-release yet.

Which makes me think that forcing users to bootstrap the project from a
Git branch hidden in Automake's repository in order to use it might be
hampering their willingness to give it a try.  It's probably time to
separate for good Automake-NG from mainline Automake, and to issue some
early alpha releases.  Not sure when I'll have time to do this properly
though ...
