Salut Ralf,

Here is my contribution, herein attached. Hopefully it is not too redundant with existing native Texinfo/AucTeX manuals. Please feel free for brickbats whenever improvement is needed.

The file is set up as a standalone file and not as an addition to the
AUCTeX manual.  My impression was that it should be the latter.  Is this
not the case anymore?

Yes it is still the case (as the title "addendum" suggests it). But in order to compile with makeinfo you need some Top node, don't you ? This is why it looks like a standalone, it was easier for me to develop it this way. Just cut and paste what you think is suitable to the AUCTeX manual.

You named yourself as the copyright owner.  Would you be willing to
assign the copyright to the FSF?

No problem. Actually I used a template to create the file (with Ch. Wedler's emacs-template package at http://emacs-template.sourceforge.net/).

This template has automatically set me as the copyright --- I did not even pay attention.

The section "Which AucTeX (sic!) function (sic!) do not work well with
Texinfo" is not something I would put in there.  I'd rather add those
points to the todo list of AUCTeX.

Yes, you are right. There should however be a link to those points in this part of the manual, because it is useful to know what is still to do.

Actually, this node is rather some wish list from me -- an area where I could contribute someday --, and as such it is quite fine to push to the AUCTeX ToDo list or a subnode thereof.

Please note that there is an @anchor within it with another node pointing at it.

And the program we are concerned with is spelled "AUCTeX", not "AucTeX".

Sorry for that, I have fixed it and used the official macro. Please see attachement. By the way, what does AUCTeX mean ?
