I don't see how the project information (name, version, bug address,
etc) is more vital than the build infrastructure, also they are both
pretty project specific so not something that would ease reuse in any

Here's a first batch, some of those are based on the latest change to
the =announce-N.N files which might seem to be post-release, I could
