Opening auctex-info repeatedly you have to dig through
a chunk of text at the beginning again and again, which
is useful the first time only.

My proposal is to rearrange a little bit these parts.

The following boxquoted text should go into `introduction'.

|    Although AUCTeX contains a large number of features, there are no
| reasons to despair.  You can continue to write TeX and LaTeX documents
| the way you are used to, and only start using the multiple features in
| small steps.  AUCTeX is not monolithic, each feature described in this
| manual is useful by itself, but together they provide an environment
| where you will make very few LaTeX errors, and makes it easy to find
| the errors that may slip through anyway.
|    If you want to make AUCTeX aware of style files and multi-file
| documents right away, insert the following in your `.emacs' file.
|      (setq TeX-auto-save t)
|      (setq TeX-parse-self t)
|      (setq-default TeX-master nil)
|    If you are using the tool bar, there is some tool bar support
| available for LaTeX which you can enable with
|      (add-hook 'LaTeX-mode-hook #'LaTeX-install-toolbar)
|    Another thing you should enable is RefTeX (*note Installation:
| (reftex)Installation.), a comprehensive solution for managing cross
| references, bibliographies, indices, document navigation and a few
| other things.

Next quoted part might be canceled, as more or less

|    NOTE: This documentation is preliminary.  It should however cover
| most important points.  Corrections or perhaps rewrites of sections are

The next I propose to put into a separate section `resources/bugs'

|    There is a mailing list for general discussion about AUCTeX: write a
| mail with "subscribe" in the subject to <address@hidden> to
| join it.  Send contributions to <address@hidden>.
|    Bug reports should go to <address@hidden>, suggestions for new
| features, and pleas for help should go to either <address@hidden>
| (the AUCTeX developers), or to <address@hidden> if they might have
| general interest.  Please use the command `M-x TeX-submit-bug-report
| RET' to report bugs if possible.  You can subscribe to a low-volume
| announcement list by sending "subscribe" in the subject of a mail to
| <address@hidden>.

Thanks to everyone involved!
