2010-02-18  Karl Berry  <karl@gnu.org>

	* make-stds.texi (Standard Targets) <do-install-info>: Avoid
	absolute, DESTDIR-related, target name, which fails if the target
	directory happens to contain spaces.  Hence avoid $@, which was
	redundantly specified anyway.  Finally, only the install-info run
	is POST_INSTALL, the INSTALL_DATA part is NORMAL_INSTALL.
	Report from Aubrey Jaffer, follow-up from Ralf Wildenhues,
	11 Feb 2010 07:29:15.

	(Directory Variables): State that install dirs and their parents
	should be created before being used.

	(DESTDIR): Capitalize section name in the usual way.

	(Standard Targets) <installdirs>: mkinstalldirs is
	better found in Gnulib.

2010-02-18  Thien-Thi Nguyen  <ttn@gnuvola.org>  (tiny change)

	Insert space before open-paren in C code fragments.
	* doc/standards.texi

2010-02-18  Thien-Thi Nguyen  <ttn@gnuvola.org>  (tiny change)

	* doc/standards.texi (Change Log Concepts):
	Move the "however, one line to describe change ok" from its
	own paragraph (following another "however..." sentence, thus
	losing the antecedent) into the paragraph where "need to
	describe full purpose of changes" is first discouraged.
	Also, expand the prepositional noun phrase to cover a
	single change.

2010-02-18  Thien-Thi Nguyen  <ttn@gnuvola.org>  (tiny change)

	* doc/standards.texi (Change Log Concepts): Use three hyphens
	for "emdash".
