Is it really 2 months already?  Ouch.  Sorry about that :-(

Libtool _is_ still maintained, albeit by very busy people.  My contribution is 
particularly fragmented since I cannot access CVS through the company firewall, 
and I am currently ``of no fixed abode'' so my net access out of office hours 
relies on the good will of friends.

Indeed.  Thanks Rob!

Yes, I have the notification in my inbox.  Considering your long term 
contribution of quality patches to libtool, would you like write access to the 
repository?  Send me a savannah account name, and I'll set that up for you 
today if you like... I have the time to keep up with the patches list and 
review anything that is posted as long as someone else can take care of the 
commits.  If you have the ability to publish periodic snapshot tarballs from 
CVS I would be able to resume a more active role in maintainership myself...

I'm keen to release libtool-1.5 from HEAD to prompt wider testing, but I also 
know that with things the way they are, we probably couldn't deal with the 
extra traffic :-(
