Let me make an announcement here:

  If the FSF handles this problem also putting out a
  non-alpha-non-beta 1.11 release of Automake before
  2008-02-01 I will donate k Euros to the FSF with k equal
  the number of days left to that deadline, e.g. if Automake
  1.11 is released on 2008-01-31 I will donate 1 Euro,
  for 2008-01-05 it would be 32 - 5 = 27 Euros. Time is UTC+0,
  31 Euros is maximum, just to be on the safe side.

Maybe that's some extra fun and motivation.
Yes, it's not enough to move mountains but I'm still
a student - maybe it's enough to move a few people.

May the new year be a great your for Free Software. Cheers.
