Thank you. Here are a few comments.

In Texinfo, you need to add two spaces after a period.

Also, providing backwards compatibility for "sidewaystable" in code is
fine, but I don't think we need to talk about it anymore as an
alternative option in the documentation. If you feel uncomfortable about
it, I think it's better to add a footnote:

  Possible values are @address@hidden, the value was
  @code{sidewaystable}.  This is deprecated since Org 8.3.},

Also, could you provide a proper commit message, with "TINYCHANGE" at
its end. For more information, see


I think you can also merge both patches. But that's your call.
