I have posted a few times on this list, most recently in February,
about problems that caused makeinfo to refuse to produce valid xml
files from

with the makeinfo command

makeinfo --xml --no-split --output=nco.xml nco.texi

on my Debian Sid system.
makeinfo still does not convert this document to XML correctly for me.
As far as I know, nco.texi is completely standards-compliant texinfo.
Currently, the first error encountered with the XML translation is

XML Parsing Error: undefined entity
Location: file:///home/zender/nco/doc/nco.xml
Line Number 7, Column 40: <setvalue name="copyright-years">1995&ndash;2004</setvalue>

This is using
address@hidden:~/nco/doc$ makeinfo --version
makeinfo (GNU texinfo) 4.7

Since makeinfo --xml has never translated nco.texi correctly,
I am wondering whether it would make sense to add nco.texi to
your suite of makeinfo tests, if it exists.
Just a suggestion, I know you are volunteers whose time is limited.
