Hi List,

[My] html splitting patches to texinfo are now available in a texinfo
pretest release, see below.  Using this pretest, the LilyPond html
documentation can be split into separate html pages, like you find
them at our personal websites and

Anthony, maybe it would be a good idea to include this html
documentation, maybe even in a separate -doc package like the .rpm?
Would debian unstable want to include texinfo pretest releases?


Note: if you want to try this, you'll have to edit the makefile:

Hi folks,

I've made a very preliminary texinfo pretest available at:

(I will update as soon as I again have the permissions to do so.)

I did this mostly to get Jan's work on HTML splitting out there, at his
special request.  It also includes Jan's @verbatim/@verb patch, and
switches to the GNU Free Documentation License.

I have over 200 other messages and many more worthy patches to
integrate, so the next release is not imminent :(.

Please email me or the list (address@hidden) with questions
or problems.  Do not email the regular texinfo lists, they should remain
for official releases.
