Thanks a lot for the detailed recipe. Up to now, the texinfo manual
I want to write is really not much more than gpl.texi and
doclicense.texi.  I started this thread because it was not quite
clear to me how things are supposed to work from a technical
perspective.  Anyway, I need the content, too, for which I'd love
yet more if there was a single emacs command taking care of it...

So from that perspective I will need a little while before I
can report in more detail about my success or failure with this
2-step procedure.

Thanks again,
