7.2 Automake direct projects

The project type that reads Makefile.am directly is derived from the sources of the original project-am.el mode that was distributed independently. This mode eventually became EDE. The ‘project-am’ project will read existing automake files, but will not generate them automatically, or create new ones. As such, it is useful as a browsing tool, or as maintenance in managing file lists.
