Sure, but .info files are built as part of make dist, so just allow
maintainers to say "no, I don't want this info file to be installed"
(and no pdfs, dvis, &c. built, either).

That's currently how it's done. I just checked with automake 1.11.1 on
Ubuntu 10.10. I've maintained packages where generated .texi files are
used, and it's all fine as long as they're also distributed.

.info files are packaged as part of `make dist', which makes `texinfo'
a maintainer tool (it's also supported by `missing', so that's more
evidence in favour, IMHO). Therefore, it seems to me that it is
reasonable that the maintainer has `texinfo' installed and the user
should never have to actually rebuild a .info file. Then it's OK to
package it and just not install it if COND is false.

Ah, a piece of logic I didn't think of.  Hmpf.

I need to reread all the long comments in automake.in, to also take the
info-in-srcdir-or-not complication into account.

I want to be able to say "no, I do not want this info file to be built
nor installed" for the user.  This is what (at least some) users need.

Also, some users need to be able to generate .texi files.  I'm not sure
if it is always sufficient to let the maintainer generate them (and ship
them plus their .info files).

I don't understand what you mean with "blocked" nor with "access to
`texinfo'".

Thanks,
Ralf

Further thoughts on the above: The maintainer should always have
access to `texinfo', and the user should never have to rebuild .info
files, so it seems OK to me if they're not blocked when COND is false.

Disagree. foo.info should always be built, because it goes into `make
dist'. If you want to limit building for non-specific `make', then
make sure that the .info files and such all depend on `make dist', so
the tarball is correctly generated.

Agree with the remarks about not making pdfs, dvis and inhibiting
their installation.

Disagree. foo.info should always be built, because it goes into `make
dist'. If you want to limit building for non-specific `make', then
make sure that the .info files and such all depend on `make dist', so
the tarball is correctly generated.

Agree with the remarks about not making pdfs, dvis and inhibiting

Severity: wishlist

Conditional _TEXINFOS files should be supported, i.e.,

if COND
info_TEXINFOS = foo.texi
foo_TEXINFOS = bar.texi
nodist_info_TEXINFOS = generated.texi
endif

should work to generate and install foo.{info,pdf,...} only if COND,
but distribute foo.texi and bar.texi always.  Similar with
generated.texi (except for distribution, of course).

Cheers,
Ralf
