No, once manual.org is the official source for org.texi, there shouldn't
be any difficulty AFAICT.

My concern is with the time between a working manual.org and when it
becomes the official source.  IIRC, I wasn't able to get a commitment to
make manual.org the official source, so was looking at an open-ended
future of what I considered arduous maintenance, without any real hope
the project might succeed.  Perhaps you have that wrinkle ironed out?

BTW, I wasn't able to export manual.org using Org mode version 9.1.4
(9.1.4-elpaplus @ /Users/dk/.emacs.d/elpa/org-plus-contrib-20171205/).
It fails with this message:

format: Symbol’s value as variable is void: M-x

Does it depend on a more recent Org mode?

All the best,

Thomas S. Dye
