The code that creates the file: internals.texi, which is found in ./scm/documentation-generate.scm and ./scm/documentation-lib.scm, inserts the following texinfo code near the beginning of the file:

* GNU LilyPond Internals Reference: (internals). LilyPond Internals Reference.

This texinfo code is incorrect as the reference '(internals)' points to a non-existent file; it should read '(lilypond-internals)'. It is also somewhat redundant because the main info dir section for LilyPond already contains a menu item that points to the correct file. As far as I can tell, this incorrect code only affects the internals.info, file so removing it will not impact any other document.

I suggest removing this code and have attached a patch to v2.23 that does that. This patch also removes the function texi-file-head, because it is only used to create the code above.

If you rather I can give a patch that corrects the pointer.

Your thoughts?

Thank you,

Looks good to me. Would you be willing to finish
the contribution process yourself by putting up a
merge request? Read the instructions at


Someone else can do this for you if you prefer so.


I would be happy to.

I hope to make more interesting contributions in the future. This one just seemed like a good place to start.
