`make gnulib-sync` would definitely be worth doing.

Done in the attached.  WDYT?

Can we move this to gnulib's for sharing with other projects?

Ideally yes - the problem is that the list of files to sync from gnulib
may be different for each project, and even the basenames of some
file sometimes do not match:

+           && cp -v gnulib/doc/COPYINGv3 COPYING \

Any idea how to work around that?

As long as any customizations can be characterized into overrides and the generic rule in knows how to honor those overrides, it seems like it should work. But I'm not sure what data representation would be easiest to manipulate into those overrides.

A different approach would be using git symlinks that point into the git submodule (then your local file is always up-to-date if your submodule is up-to-date).
