We want to track the current release - not to have directories using three
different major versions because some were updated in isolation, and with
a risk that a bugfix change will introduce unwanted changed in generated
files unless you keep copies of six different releases around.

I can at least send notes when new automake releases appear (that
directories should perhaps be updated to all together), and note such
things as that your patch didn't update gcc/doc/install.texi to reflect
that libstdc++-v3 now uses 1.8.5.
