texinfo contains the possibility to translate some tags (e.g. the headings)
by using the @documentlanguage command; but the needed txi-*.txi files are
While building a RPM including these files I ran into the problem that the
tetex package brings its own texinfo.tex which conflicts with my
enhancements. Because the tetex-texinfo version seems to be obsoleted and
doesn't contains the other I think the standalone texinfo-package should
provide all needed files including texinfo.tex.
I will send the diffs against the spec-file of 4.0-2 which solves bug #6632
by the way...

Diff against texinfo-4.0-2 spec-file
Thanks - I've fixed the info-stnd stuff (somewhat different from what you
As for the txi stuff, the reason why they aren't included is the conflict with
tetex; I'd rather have tetex updated with the current files from texinfo than
moving them out of tetex and putting them into texinfo.
Assigning this to the owner of tetex...
Just so I'm absolutely clear: which files exactly need updating? I think it's
with additional files:
Is that right?
Yes; the first two files are in current tetex already.
The location of 'texinfo.cnf' is variable as long it is under the texmf-root and
has been seen by the 'texhash' command. I have choosen the 'config' subdir
because the other TeX modules are using it also.
Okay, in fact it looks like just updating the texinfo in the tetex SRPM to the
current texinfo (as well as adding those two files to the manifest) will fix
If the texinfo.cnf is left out, is that a huge problem? I think that texinfo
rather than tetex should provide that, if at all.
I would like to see it as a template where the user can make its changes.
Because the documentation does not say something about the place/directory where
this file should be located, a standard texinfo.cnf in the distribution would
give an hint where it can be expected on a RH system.
But if it does not fit into current packages, you can omit it...
Now that I look more closely at this, these seem up to date already:
Fixed in tetex-1.0.7-16.
