It is important to fix this, since it is not good for Flymake to fail
on the GNU example of proper packaging.

It could be fixed in Flymake or fixed in GNU Hello.
Which one is better?

These days, it seems much better to use Flycheck than Flymake (that's certainly what I do). See https://github.com/flycheck/flycheck

It would be a pity for Flymake to become yet another part of Emacs that developers spend time updating and users largely ignore; better to spin it off into ELPA, and if people still want to work on it there, fine. Meanwhile, why not use Flycheck by default (in the same way as we've "in-sourced" Org and other packages)?
