I probably am very atypical; I used to read even system manuals via info in Emacs, but for the last 10 years or more, I don't. Another reason that makes me a bad judge is because I do not use our doc in any formatted form---"git grep -e ... Documentation/" is easier and faster. So, no, I have no opinion. > If nobody seems to care very much for the info documentation, we could > drop it. I've put a query out on Twitter to see if anyone I know is > using it. Thanks.
