Subject: gnun-1.0 released [stable]

I'm pleased to announce that GNUN 1.0 has been released and is
available at and its mirrors.

GNUN is a build system for translations with the sole task
to make their maintenance easier.  GNUN is supposed to work behind
the scenes, so it is not necessary for translators to install it

The package includes two manuals---the GNUnited Nations Manual (gnun)
and the GNU Web Translators Manual (web-trans); the latter is
the official documentation for the translation process
and is a must read for all translation team leaders.

More on GNUN home page,

Version 1.0 is a maintenance release, it includes minor updates
and improvements of existing features.  In this release, the link
to the list of translation priorities on in the GNU Web
Translators Manual was replaced with a copy of that page.

The shift in the major version from 0 to 1 was requested by rms
back in 2018, there are no major changes that would suggest it.

Here are the compressed sources and a GPG detached signature[*]:

Here are the MD5 and SHA1 checksums:

[*] Use a .sig file to verify that the corresponding file (without the
.sig suffix) is intact.  First, be sure to download both the .sig file
and the corresponding tarball.  Then, run a command like this:

  gpg --verify gnun-1.0.tar.gz.sig gnun-1.0.tar.gz

If that command fails because you don't have the required public keys,
then run this command to import it:

  gpg --keyserver \
    --recv-keys 0x1BBBC053D835DD16 0xE0ACD3E0CBE7874A

The parameters of signing keys are

rsa2048 2012-01-17 [SC]
3EAE C8A0 4B97 561F 2A52  E35E 1BBB C053 D835 DD16

rsa2048 2014-10-21 [SC]
BD9D 4DEE 7B2F F1CB EF2E  E0C4 E0AC D3E0 CBE7 874A

To check them, run

  gpg --fingerprint 0x1BBBC053D835DD16 0xE0ACD3E0CBE7874A

Then rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

In order to further validate these keys, request me to appoint
an in-person key signing session.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.69
  Automake 1.15
  Makeinfo 6.1
