For documentation changes like this it may be easier and less ambiguous
to write the docs as you would like and send a patch.
I find it much more difficult to accurately describe changes I would like.

In this case you just need to edit the texi file like:

git clone git://git.sv.gnu.org/coreutils/
cd coreutils
cd doc
#edit coreutils.texi as required
git diff > stty-info.diff
