By the way, I stumbled into a minor issue entirely unrelated to the
feature above that you may want to fix: The gnulib git repository
referenced in bootstrap seems to have changed its location, so you may
want it to change it accordingly:
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.

The original doesen't work from my system (Debian Buster) at least:

$ ./bootstrap
./bootstrap: Bootstrapping from checked-out make sources...
./bootstrap: getting gnulib files...
Cloning into 'gnulib'...
fatal: unable to connect to git.sv.gnu.org:
git.sv.gnu.org[0:]: errno=Connection refused
git.sv.gnu.org[1: 2001:470:142:5::201]: errno=Cannot assign requested address

Although the host is obviously alife:

$ ping -c1 git.sv.gnu.org
