I've seen this as well and wondered what it
meant... "By hand" - is the recommended way
having a bunch of text files and have that
compiled, or should one generate the
documentation straight from Elisp, including
docstrings and/or comments?

Also, when you could edit Info nodes that way,
where did those edits go? Using the useful and
sensible program that was the initial topic of
this thread, we find out that for example Gnus'
is here


while SLIME is here


so while the SLIME's manual could be annotated
without any hazard, how will this be done with
Gnus' without sudo right and without the
changes/annotations being threatened
by updates?
