errors, like we have done with make website?

Yes.  Ideally we should have no texinfo errors, no .ly errors, etc

I realise that to make this happen there will have to be lots of
work to understand it better,

ETA: 150 hours for the English docs alone.  Another 50-100 hours
for the translations.

Is it worth raising a tracking issue report?

I wouldn't bother adding an issue to the tracker, but there's
certainly no harm in doing so.

OK - one of the first things I see is that lilypond is always invoked with the --verbose flag - so each time we call lilypond (and it's quite a bit - over 180 as an estimate from grep) we get 100s of lines of lilypond debug output - this probably adds 20-30,000 lines to the output. My suggestion for task 1 is to get rid of the --verbose flag. Any idea why it's there?
