Re: Overlong nodes in the Emacs Lisp Manual

    Both the Emacs Manual and the Lisp Manual are distributed with Emacs,
    so making a cross-reference is not a problem.  Or do you mean hardcopy
    versions of the Lisp Manual?


    Regexp syntax doesn't change too often, so syncing these manuals
    between each other before the release would be enough - I see
    no reason for the text about regexps to be different in both manuals.

I am sure there are differences that are intentional.  Please
drop this issue.

Are there any tasks in FOR-RELEASE that you could do?  Could you
perhaps split some of the longer nodes in the manual?  I would like to
split every node that documents a specific technical topic and is
longer than 200 lines.  200 lines is still too long, for such a node,
but splitting the longer nodes is at least a start.
