Here's a short review:

* ChangeLog - not used since 2009. Drop it (i e move it to unused)?
* INSTALL - Looks ok to me, although I haven't read it thoroughly.
* NEWS - Ok. Not much here.
* README - contains references to "Smurf" which probably should be
changed to "Swami", can you do that, Elimar?
* README.cmake - I remember a wish for a step-by-step list of how to
make MSVC project files, can you do that, Pedro?
* README-OSX - Ok, updated recently
* AUTHORS, THANKS - Anybody here that feels they've made a contribution
and should be listed here, let me know. Don't be shy :-)
* TODO - Outdated. I suggest we drop this file or possibly replace it
with a reference link to the trac tickets.
* doc/CMakeLists.txt - I assume this one's up to date
* doc/Doxyfile - Changed 1.1.1 to 1.1.2
* doc/Doxyfile.cmake - I assume this one's up to date
* doc/example.c - Fixed a spelling error
* doc/Fluidsynth.1 (man page) - needs updating with new settings, I can
do that
* doc/fluidsynth_arpeggio.c - Ok
* doc/fluidsynth_fx.c - Ok
* doc/fluidsynth_LADSPA.c - Btw, has anybody tested LADSPA as of lately?
Is it working? I think Debian enabled it recently.
* doc/fluidsynth_metronome.c - Ok
* doc/fluidsynth_simple.c - Ok
* doc/fluidsynth-v10-devdoc.xml - Move to unused?
* doc/fluidsynth-v11-devdoc.txt - needs updating with new settings, I
can do that
* doc/README - Link to resonance.org updated
* doc/Makefile.am - Ok
* doc/xtrafluid.txt - Seems outdated, contains references to "iiwusynth"
and info on a "Director" plugin. Is anybody using that?

* In addition, a lot of files reference "Josh Green". Elimar, if you
think these should be updated with the new name, can you do that?
