Before anything, please don't push if you modify them or revert some
parts in further commits.  Let me do the work of correcting and send the
list the updated patches after your review.  These 2 patches are not
related to each other but because of the Changelog possible conflicts if
not applied in order I send them together (I will send something about
this issue in a different topic).  Feel free to comment and correct!

In patch 0001, I choose to ignore explictly files in "build-aux" instead
of the whole directory to avoid problems like what happened with

Patch 0002 fixes the missing GNU FDL licence which is advertised in the
beginning of the manual.  As you maintain the Debian package by
yourself, keep in mind that you may have to create a separate package
"mcron-doc" in non-free section for the documentation since GNU FDL is
not DFSG compliant (since that's not a issue with GNU standards, it
shouldn't be treated upstream).

I have used the GNU changelog style which AIUI is not really subject to
interpretation (with a few exceptions :)).  Please take a look at
(info "(standards) Change Logs") and if you are not ok with my choices
please give me your suggestions.

Happy Hacking!
