Hi Alex,

Feel free to reach out if you have pending patches/issues you want to
"bump", ideas for improvements, general advice for a new GNU maintainer
- and above all if you'd like to lend a hand toward getting `libtool' up
and running again.
Many thanks for your work on Libtool!

I believe a good start would be to integrate suggestions and patches
from the issue tracker

    https://savannah.gnu.org/patch/?group=libtool

and maybe also some patches Debian (and other distributions) have added
over the years to the last 2.4.6 release.  For instance:

    https://sources.debian.org/patches/libtool/2.4.6-15/

We must be very careful with Debian patches!
Only Debian distributes version (valid for 1.4 and 2*) that cannot pass libtool 
regression tests.
As result is expected Debian to be flooded with defects.

Some of the outstanding bugs with existing patches :
https://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=38305
https://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=23348
https://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=21137
            (and its dups at 22895, 31900, and 36762)
https://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=21503
https://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=22373
https://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=46559

Some of the outstanding bugs without any suggested patches:
https://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=45738
https://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=52253
https://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=53479

If those bugs are not Debian specific someone could look at them.

Libtool projects must not care for defects that shows Debian libtool brokenness.
