A minor nit-pick for GnuLib's "make syntax-check",
where "maint.mk" has the following rule:
        @require='Copyright @copyright\{\} .*'$$(date +%Y)' Free'       \
        in_vc_files=$(texi)                                             \
        halt='out of date copyright in $(texi); update it'              \

This assumes the copyright year is followed by the word "Free" (implicitly: "Free 
Software Foundation") in the texinfo file.

If one is to use Gnulib on a non FSF project, "make syntax-check" fails on this 

(This might be intentional, if Gnulib, or just gnulib's syntax-check, is assume 
to be used mainly on FSF projects - if so, not worth changing).
