  - Update to version 6.6:
    * Language:
      . new commands @&, @ampchar{}
      . @cropmarks command removed
      . @ctrl is no longer recognised (it was a way to insert literal
      control characters in Info files, but deprecated since the
      time of Texinfo version 2)
      . \usebracesinindexestrue is no longer recommended for using braces in
      index entries, and has been a no-op for some time
    * texi2any
      . extension modules fixed to work with the "thread-safe locales" of
      Perl 5.28 and newer
      . some code changed to stop warnings being given by newer versions of Perl
      . for HTML output, use `id' to define link targets instead of the `name'
      attribute on <a>
      . A native-code implementation of the Texinfo parser has been included
      on an experimental basis, which makes texi2any a lot faster.  Set the
      `TEXINFO_XS_PARSER' environment variable to 1 to use.
      . changes to HTML output:
      . omit colon after node name in menus by default (use
      `MENU_ENTRY_COLON' to add it back)
      . no special CSS for commands like @smallexample
      . new customization variable `SECTION_NAME_IN_TITLE' to use the
      section name as the document <title>
      . use section names instead of node names in generated menus
      . pass on flags set with -D to TeX
      . useless static libraries are not installed
      . the newline after an @insertcopying is not output
      . warning given for @multitable prototypes not in braces
      . @indent and @noindent are not allowed inside the arguments to
      commands where they are not meaningful
      . @quote-arg and @allow-recursion are not recognised (these two used
      to be recognised by makeinfo in macro definitions but were never
      implemented in texinfo.tex)
      . `FIX_TEXINFO' removed as a customization variable
      . do not recognise or warn about obsolete customization variables
    * info
      . debugging output with -x is not diverted to a separate infodebug file
    * Development:
      . switch from Subversion to git
      . automake 1.16
  - Drop no longer needed patch:
    * perl-5.28-fixes.patch
