Gmane
From: Peter Simons <simons <at> cryp.to>
Subject: GNU Autoconf Archive 2013.06.09 released [stable]
Newsgroups: gmane.org.fsf.announce
Date: Sunday 9th June 2013 09:58:57 UTC (over 3 years ago)
The GNU Autoconf Archive is a collection of more than 450 macros for GNU
Autoconf
that have been contributed as free software by friendly supporters of the
cause
From all over the Internet. Every single one of those macros can be re-used
without imposing any restrictions whatsoever on the licensing of the
generated
configure script. In particular, it is possible to use all those macros in
configure scripts that are meant for non-free software. This policy is
unusual
for a Free Software Foundation project. The FSF firmly believes that
software
ought to be free, and software licenses like the GPL are specifically
designed to
ensure that derivative work based on free software must be free as well. In
case
of Autoconf, however, an exception has been made, because Autoconf is at
such a
pivotal position in the software development tool chain that the benefits
from
having this tool available as widely as possible outweigh the disadvantage
that
some authors may choose to use it, too, for proprietary software.

The best place to start exploring the Archive is the on-line documentation
at
<http://www.gnu.org/software/autoconf-archive/>.

[*] 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 autoconf-archive-2013.06.09.tar.gz.sig

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

  gpg --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 99089D72

and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.69
  Automake 1.13.1
  Gnulib v0.0-7952-g439b0e9
