Gah, and then I didn't forward the patch, I seem to have forgotten how
to use gmail's UI  :-\

Attached this time, here's the original mail again:

        PR c++/53919
        * doc/install.texi (Installing GCC): Refer to instructions for
        released versions. Fix hyphenation.

Whether or not we want the release-specific installation instructions
online, I don't think it hurts to point out that the docs at
http://gcc.gnu.org/install/ refer to the SVN trunk.

OK for trunk?

This is good, with one caveat.  Can we please not refer to SVN? ;-)

This is one of those lessons learned, where just "current development
sources" or similar says the same, de facto, and makes it easier to
change things.  (You'd be surprised how long we kept finding references
to CVS.)

 The latest version of this document is always available at
 @uref{http://gcc.gnu.org/install/,,http://gcc.gnu.org/install/}.
+The latest version refers to the SVN development sources, instructions for
+specific released versions are included with the sources.

And here, instead of repeating "The latest version", how about just
"It refers..."?

Thanks!

Gerald
