Didn't mean to cause you any trouble :)

Speaking of breaking the mirror,
I'm wondering how best to coordinate an upcoming change.
The one that'll change jm_ to gl_ in all gnulib/m4/*.m4 files.
FYI, I've already made the change in coreutils CVS.
Several of the files that need to be changed in gnulib are mirrored
from gettext.  Bruno, would you like a separate patch to convert
the gettext-owned m4 files first?

And while we're on the subject, is there a policy for how
to modify the serial number line in files like intmax.m4:

  # intmax.m4 serial 1 (gettext-0.12)

Once it's changed, it should no longer reference gettext-0.12,
so I've done things like the following for the significant changes
I've just made in coreutils:

  # intmax.m4 serial 2
