latex2e-help-texinfo – Unofficial reference manual covering

The manual is provided as Texinfo source (which was originally derived from the VMS help file in the DECUS distribution of 1990, with many subsequent changes). This is a collaborative development, and details of getting involved are to be found on the package home page. A Spanish translation is included here, and a French translation is available as a separate package.

All the other formats in the distribution are derived from the Texinfo source, as usual.
