Thanks for this. I think having the manual in org format is a great idea.

I support the move to manual.org. If there are concerns about the
quality of the manual.org file and its exported .texi manual that
prevent it from becoming the master source one could ask contributors to
add information to both the .texi and .org file until the final
conversion is made. At the very least this would prevent an individual
from taking all the load.

Was there resistance to the move to manual.org previously? Or was the
issue one of apathy?

Export worked for me on Org mode version 9.1.4
