Re: Any chance to make a new autoconf release?

A new release would be great - it's very much needed. There are lots of
missing features that distros have to work around with their own custom
patches - 'runstatedir' most notably. These are causing CMake to gain
ground, which maybe isn't great for those of us who love Autotools.

I don't think anybody wants Autoconf to become abandonware. Would it make
sense to open up maintenance to new developers?
