<mark_weaver>civodul: I have a local patch to add texinfo-4.13a back to Guix, resurrecting the package that you had made before texinfo 5 came out. I think it might be of wider interest for people with slower computers, such Yeeloongs.
<mark_weaver>On my Yeeloong, guile.info builds in about 7 seconds with texinfo-4.13a, and it takes about 12 minutes with texinfo-5.2. That's absolutely intolerable for me.
<mark_weaver>I can't wait 12 minutes every time I commit a patch or switch revisions that touches the manual.
<davexunit>it's hard to justify rewriting with such a gratuitous performance regression.
<mark_weaver>civodul: so, I'm wondering how you'd feel about me adding texinfo-4 back to Guix? If not, I can carry the patch as a local modification, but anyone who does development with a slower machine will want it, I think.
