My apologies for having taken so long to respond to this thread. My hacking time is short, and the thread was growing faster than I could read it... :-)

libtool maintainers: Would you consider giving either Scott or me (preferably
both) with CVS access? That'd help a lot getting libtool in shape for all
architectures without having to maintain such a "debian fork" of libtool.

Absolutely. The FSF will inform me when the paperwork is done, and I have recently updated to make it as easy as possible for us to accept new maintainers.

libtool maintainers: On having CVS access, I myself would agree to apply only
non-conflictive patches (such as my GNU/K*BSD stuff) unless otherwise discussed
in the list (I believe the same applies to Scott). If you need credentials,
I'm member of Debian and have already access to GRUB CVS. Does all this sound
ok for you?

You must also agree not to commit anything for which you do not have knowledge of the author, and the author has exchanged paperwork with the FSF, except for very small patches.

GNU libtool is copyrighted by the FSF and only the FSF may license it under
additional terms. It's not something you should discuss with libtool's
maintainers, nor something that should be discussed on this list.

Indeed.  Please take this up with RMS.
