Description of problem:
Please consider adding to the introduction of all Red Hat documentation a
section describing the tools used to create the documentation (TeX, Emacs,
Texinfo, texi2html, etc.)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
