Hi Francis,

You said in a previous mail that the documentation is in texinfo now, but in separate files (convertedĀ from HTML using pandoc) but that need a manual cleanup. You also want to put it allĀ in 1 texi file. Is that still the case?

Can you point me where I can find these texinfo files? I can then work on putting them into one texi file over the next two weeks.

Thanks! I'm also learning emacs as well, while playing with texinfo.
Emacs isn't actually needed for texinfo, I only mentioned that because
there is a special mode for it in emacs but you can use any editor.

There's no specific deadline. I'm just looking for people to work with
since I'm also working on other tasks. I would like to get a release
out some time this or next month, 20150518 is getting a bit long in
the tooth.

That's fine. I'm happy to help.
