Thanks, that's two extra useful bits of functionality that my process
currently lacks. I wonder whether the place for them is more in a
release tool than yet another addition to maint.mk?

I gather up release-and-announcement code in woger:


There is no gnu method at present because I removed it, thinking
(erroneously) that gnulib would do everything I wanted. I think I'll
re-add it, rewriting it to use the gnulib announcement email and
upload commands, plus the code above.

Also thanks for the mention of vc-dwim; looks like that should help me
avoid making quite so many mistakes with my patches.
