So what files should and shouldn't be in the tarball then? All the
goodies pass the make distcheck stuff (so the important files are
there), I can only think about some README and NEWS files and it
totally depends on the project if those files are relevant for being

Anyway IMHO there is nothing wrong with the autotools framework,
especially with xfce-dev-tools. The make files are readable (compared
to gnome) and the macros are easy to use for everyone.


PS. what's wrong with copy and past ^_^?
