   only info.texi and those that are part of the Emacs manual?
   Also, remove gfdl.texi and gpl.texi if they are included.


I removed man/faq.texi, because it has nothing to do with the Emacs manual.
Should we add man/faq.texi as something that should be updated?

I removed man/ack.texi, because it is already listed separately.

I still have to take care of some problems in some of the chapters I

The original aim was to have everything proofread by at

For the Emacs manual, it might be better if we kept that standard, if
