Work on a full Texinfo documentation has started in the 'texibook' branch of the Maneage development repo.

In particular, Commit 4fed6094 adds the skeleton Texinfo source (in 'reproduce/softare/doc/maneage.texi') and also adds its build rules in 'high-level.mk'. The build rules currently build the Info, PDF and HTML versions of the manual, making it easily accessible by running '.local/bin/info maneage' on the host operating system.

The basic infrastructure is therefore in place and we can now start adding content. Once the first draft is complete, we can put the HTML and PDF versions on the Maneage webpage :-).

As discussed in task #15823, it seems reasonable to have a complete documentation of Maneage in Texinfo:

With Texinfo we'll be able to automatically generate webpages, an elegant PDF, and info pages that Maneage users can directly access on the command-line within their own projects (for example with '.local/bin/info maneage'). The raw source of the Texinfo can be in the core Maneage branch, and its PDF and info formats can built during './project configure'. For us developers, we can use it to extract HTMLs and put them in the webpage.
