[PATCH] Emacs info documentation in the wrong category
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:37 EST
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. go to System/Help
2. go to "Command Line Help"
3. go to "GNU Info Pages"
Notice "Emacs" and "GNU Emacs" categories.
Only one category "Emacs"
If you don't specify "--section" command line option then install-info will
install the page in the correct section.

This patch fixes the bug.
This bug is still present in FC6, emacs-21.4-17
This bug is still present in emacs-22.0.93-7.fc7
$ zgrep INFO-DIR-SECTION /usr/share/info/emacs.gz
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
2. GNU Emacs
