  FWIW, I took the habit of maintaining only one documentation source
  (in Texinfo format) and extracting README files and others (such as
  INSTALL) from there, hence also avoiding the maintenance of duplicate

  It's easy to extract specific chapters from an Info file. For
  instance, here's a Makefile target that I have in Clon:

        info --file=./doc/$(PROJECT)  \
             -n Installation                    \
             -n Configuration                   \
             -n 'Non-ANSI Features'             \
             -n 'Supported Platforms'           \
        perl -pi -e 's/^File:.*\n//g' $@

Resistance is futile. You will be jazzimilated.
