I don't think we have what this thread talks about covered in the
manual.

If we do have though, consider this bug obsolete.

> > Info > HTML > man > txt > PDF > PS ?

> Roughly, yes.


Not the same message, but in the thread:

>     What about installing only HTML?
>
>     I find that HTML (and Info, and man) is more convenient to read on-line
>     than PDFs.  We rarely include PDF documentation in packages.
>
>     Of course, avoiding PDF/PS/DVI allows us to remove the dependency
>     on TeX Live.  Last, from discussions I heard at the Reproducible
>     Build Summit, I think DVIs and maybe PS/PDFs are not
>     bit-reproducible out-of-the-box.
>
>     WDYT?
>
>     Maybe we should have a policy on how to choose the installed
>     documentation formats.
