+From Karl Berry: GNU Hello remains a complete example package,
+attempting to exemplify some best practices for GNU packages.  For
+example, it uses Automake for configuration, Gettext for
+internationalization, Help2man to avoid maintaining separate man
+pages, and Gnulib to share common sources.
+For examples in other programming languages, please see Gettext.  The
+Automake manual also contains several examples worked from scratch.

+From Karl Berry: we hope the next major release of Texinfo will be
+made in 2011, after several years of development.  Thanks to my

address@hidden  It will provide vastly better support for HTML
+customization, Unicode, additional back-ends, and so on.  If you want
+to try it now, it's in the development sources.
address@hidden, as a separable file, has been updated separately
