Description petrosyan 2006-07-15 11:53:03 EDT
Description of problem:
Emacs's info documentation is in "GNU Emacs" category. However the default and
correct category is "Emacs". Currently there are 2 categories "Emacs" and "GNU
Emacs". The attached patch fixes the problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
emacs-21.4-14

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. go to System/Help
2. go to "Command Line Help"
3. go to "GNU Info Pages"

Actual results:
Notice "Emacs" and "GNU Emacs" categories.

Expected results:
Only one category "Emacs"

Additional info:
If you don't specify "--section" command line option then install-info will
install the page in the correct section.

This bug is still present in FC6, emacs-21.4-17
Comment 3 petrosyan 2007-03-06 11:39:58 EST
This bug is still present in emacs-22.0.93-7.fc7

please run:
$ zgrep INFO-DIR-SECTION /usr/share/info/emacs.gz 
INFO-DIR-SECTION Emacs

This shows that the default section for emacs documentation is "Emacs" and not
"GNU Emacs". Red Hat overrides the default location (by using --section="GNU
Emacs" in the spec file) and puts the documentation in "GNU Emacs". However, now
part of the documentation is still left in "Emacs" section, such as libidn
documentation for example. So currently Fedora has 2 different sections for
emacs documentation:
1. Emacs
2. GNU Emacs
