Hm.  Does the original not work?  The version I have is the same one that
is currently being distributed with the gnulib library; see:


sv.gnu.org is a valid alias for savannah.gnu.org so unless the problem is
with the git protocol vs. https, it should work fine.

I would prefer to see this change made in gnulib's upstream copy if it is a
correct change, rather than in my copy.

OK.  I always use a separate gnulib repo and set $GNULIB_SRCDIR, because
checking out gnulib takes a long time.  So I didn't notice this issue.

I know about this but I don't want to do it.  My setting for .gitignore is
correct already.  I really wish I could find a way to tell gnulib modules
to stop messing around with my .gitignore files but until then I just don't
pay any attention to those changes.
