    Does this mean that the README-alpha file is included only in test


    I think grep always includes it in 'make dist'.

Using the readme-alpha feature in Automake will make it conditional.
Use this in configure.ac[.in]:
AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE([dist-bzip2 readme-alpha])

    I was thinking README.cvs, but whatever is standard. 

There is no standard or even consensus for this particular one (that I
know of), but I don't recommend README.cvs, because what if you change
version control systems at some point?  (Admittedly it's trivial to
rename it, but ...)

    Would README.dev be included in all releases as well?

Yes.  I add it to EXTRA_DIST in Makefile.am.

    Is there a good reason while README-alpha uses a hyphen while README.dev
    uses a dot?

No, there is no good reason.

    I'll make some changes along these line when I'm bored, 

With a new kid on the scene :)??
