Texinfo is a documentation system that uses a single source file to
produce both online information and printed output.  Using Texinfo, you
can create a printed document with the normal features of a book,
including chapters, sections, cross-references, and indices.  From the
same Texinfo source file, you can create a menu-driven, online info
file with nodes, menus, cross-references, and indices using the included
makeinfo tool.

2018-12-11 - Dominique Leuenberger <dimstar@opensuse.org>
- Update perl-5.28-fixes.patch: Update locale handling for Perl 5.28.
Perl 5.28 introduced thread-safe locales, where setlocale()
only affects the locale of the current thread. External code
like mbrtowc(3) isn't aware of this thread specific locale,
so we need to explicitly modify the global one instead.
2018-11-22 - Jan Engelhardt <jengelh@inai.de>
- Use noun phrase for summaries.
2018-10-30 - Dr. Werner Fink <werner@suse.de>
- Add patch perl-5.28-fixes.patch to get build cehck working again
due broken perl API with perl 5.28 and up (boo#1113945)
2018-04-06 - adam.majer@suse.de
- install-info_exitcode.patch: install-info needs to return success
when it does nothing. We need 0 return value even on failure as
old packages in SLE-11 and SLE-12 can become uninstallable.
2018-02-23 - fvogt@suse.com
- Use %license (boo#1082318)
2018-01-26 - werner@suse.de
- Do not require bash for package info (boo#1077744)
2018-01-04 - mpluskal@suse.com
- Update to version 6.5:
* info:
+ some bugs fixed:
a bug where a segfault could happen in the regex search, for
example when the user entered a single \ as the search string
+ another bug which could make nodes inaccessible in long
"split" info files
+ a bug where it was not possible to follow a cross-reference
that was split across more than one line has been fixed
+ do not fall back to a man page if following a cross-reference
in an info file failed
+ if looking for a file failed, do not convert the name of a
file to lower-case and look for it again
* texinfo.tex
+ some faulty definitions for Unicode characters have been
changed or removed
+ fix indentation in table of contents for entries that are
split across multiple lines
* texi2dvi
+ a bug that broke the processing of LaTeX files that did not
use BibTeX has been fixed
* texi2any
+ output the encoding declaration of a HTML file earlier so it
will always occur within first 1024 bytes of file
+ `INLINE_INSERTCOPYING' removed as a customization variable
2017-10-09 - werner@suse.de
- Avoid also provide libtool() on texinfo specific perl linkage
2017-10-07 - coolo@suse.com
- Drop require on perl(Locale::Messages) as long as we bundle
perl-libintl-perl (the system one leaves tests failing)
2017-10-07 - coolo@suse.com
- Do not provide perl() - the modules are not globally available
