The GCC practice for these files is that anyone with write access may copy 
the latest versions from upstream.  I think that would be a good practice 
to follow for glibc as well.  (It does of course require people to refrain 
from making local changes to these files, as such changes would be lost on 
update from upstream.  But in practice people don't tend to make local 
changes to those files here; the last I know of were David Miller's 
changes in October 2007 to add sparcv9v2 and sparc64v2 support.  Those 
were lost in the last config.sub update to upstream because they'd never 
been added to upstream config.sub, only glibc's local copy.)
