If there are projects out there that urgently need a new automake,
where the latest released version is not good enough, and if there is
an expectation that the FSF lawyers might take a while still, then
would it be feasible simply to release automake under the GPLv3
*without* those troublesome exceptions?  Doing so would not burden
other free software projects which are already GPLv3 themselves.

Just which projects are clamouring for a new automake release - and
under what licence do they wish to distribute their makefiles +
