Hi Akim,

    I have not received answers on this regard, 

I did answer.  I replied to bug-automake, which all interested parties
are on (and which is actually the relevant list, as opposed to all of
these :) on September 2.  Copied below.

    we could also pass the info.gz file?

I see no reason to pass both info.tar.gz and info.gz.  If someone wants
to send me a usable patch to pass only info.gz in the now-usual case of
one info file, that is fine, but I don't want to spend more time on this
myself.  Changes might be needed in the template text too.

    So, Karl, Jim, and others, would you accept that gendocs.sh
    stopped generating a compressed tarball of split info files,
    but would rather ship a compressed --no-split file?

Well, I hope meeting you halfway is ok ... I just changed gendocs.sh to
default to --no-split (can be overridden with a new --info option).

However, I kept it generating a tarball even though usually it will be a
tarball of one file, because otherwise, it would be necessary to detect
when split output was being generated, etc., etc.  Didn't seem worth the

At least once you remove the stray split files now, they shouldn't
reappear ...
