> At present for each release a pdf version of the reference manual

> I wonder if it is OK if we stop generating pdfs and not worry about

> Pdf generation is broken at the moment (in en, es, and pt) and
> I believe it is not worth the trouble to fix it. I believe html and info
> (which are generated successfully) are better formats for the
> Maxima reference manual.
> The pdf version of the manual is very large (circa 3 M) and so it is
> clumsy to browse online or download, and it has no content not
> present in the info or html versions.
