Re: fixing install-info warnings for lilypond

Hi all,

(taking tex-live@tug.org from the list, that has NOTHING to do with texlive
upsream!, and breaking the thread)

I see a few not necessarily exclusive solutions:
- simple and quick: move the dircategory/info declarations from the
  lilypond-web.info to the respective .texi files.
- long term: allow a way to make install-info ignore these files
  Currently update-info-dir (in /u/sbin) just uses all files from the
  info dir, skipping over dir/dirgz/-324 /png files (see script for
  exact list).
  One could install some of these files with the extension
  and make update-info-dir skip these files
- move the info file that do NOT contain dirsections, to a completely
  different dircetory, and include in the main lilypond-web.info links
  with full path to these files.
  (not sure if that will work out)

Any further suggestions, or remarks to the above?

Best wishes
