- in ed.texinfo, the @contents line should be moved after the
  @end titlepage.

- in ed.texinfo, in the --loose-exit description, I suggest adding a

- in NEWS, the mention of --no-pause should be removed.

- the Makefile.in and small doc files should get copyright notices.  The
  wording recommended in the GNU maintainer information is:
