  If the FSF handles this problem also putting out a

  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.

I just noticed the release of Automake 1.10.1.
It's not 1.11 as requested but it has LZMA support and
is neither alpha nor beta. That's good enough for me.

32 - 21 equals 11, and according to the current exchange
rate [1] 11 Euros make 16.0765 Dollars. Therefore
I just donated 16.08 USD to the FSF.

Things I noticed about the new release:

* The GNU FTP Automake directory [2] holds a .sig.sig file:
  automake-1.10.1.tar.bz2.sig.sig . Is this by intention?

* Automake 1.10.1 did not add a .tar.lzma release
  to itself. I think that would be an important part
  for promotion LZMA and should be fixed.

Other than that great work, thanks to everybody who made
it happen!
