info docs for rpy aren't being built and installed

Description of problem:
Info docs aren't being built. Rather than distribute
manual.texi in /usr/share/doc/examples/rpy-0.4.6/, the package should build and
install the manual to /usr/share/info/ so that it browseable via info.
The package therefore also needs to add postinstall/postuninstall triggers as per:
Also the manual.info should be renamed rpy.info before packaging.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -ql rpy
Actual Results: /usr/share/doc/rpy-0.4.6/doc/manual.texi appears, no /usr/share/info/rpy.info
Expected Results: /usr/share/info/rpy.info should be installed (built from manual.texi).
Any additional movement on this bug? I didn't see any movement in CVS:
(except for rebuilding rpy for R-2.2.0).
If nobody is working on it, I might try and look into a patch to the spec file.
A patch is always welcome. :-)
I agree that this is bug, and that it needs to be fixed.
As you have pointed the solution is simple, but I have been busy
with other more pressing matter for the moment.
Thank you for the report.
Instead of installing the info documents I was thinking about making
the html and pdf variants. The Makefile we ship has all these targets.
Would you oppose such change?
I don't oppose the inclusion of the html and pdf, but I would oppose the
omission of info docs. html and pdf aren't nearly as searchable as info, and
info is integrated into emacs, where I do all my Python/RPy program anyway. ;-)
I will try and work up a patch.
We should also report upstream a propose to change the the name of the file from
manual.texi to a more descriptive rpy.texi, which would then install the info
file as rpy.info and also avoid the need to patch the rpm to change the name.

Spec file to handle installing info
Updated spec file to install info docs, uses a patch to the source, will also

Patch to source to build info docs as rpy.info
Patch which installs info doc as rpy.info rather than manual.info. Will send
Fixed in rpy-0.4.6-7.fc4. info docs are now installed and appear in directory.
Thanks. Closing bug.
"Patch which installs info doc as rpy.info rather than manual.info" has now been
applied in the upstream cvs repository. A new release will occur in
approximately a weeks time.

Thank you for your work Greg as well to Walter before.
rpy is a very useful piece of software :-) and
I am looking forward for the next release. :-)
