Prompted by,
a friendly reminder to everyone because it's an easy mistake
to do: please be cautious when writing about Texinfo commands
on GitLab. If you leave @something without special markup,
it is taken as a mention and random people having accounts
on GitLab with names @qq, etc. get mentioned and start
receiving unsolicited notifications for comments on the merge
request. The typical case is @lilypond, which mentions all 25+
members of the LilyPond group ... This collision is a bit
unfortunate, but the fix is simple: always enclose Texinfo
commands in backticks. For code suggestions, you can also
use the dedicated feature of GitLab, which also makes it
easier for the patch author to apply s/ /  /-style changes. Read
about those. I've also opened
to make new contributors aware of this.
