Hi there!

I want to put a link to the autoconf manual on a web page,
however I have not found anything that suits my need on the
Autoconf home page.

The home page http://www.gnu.org/software/autoconf/ points
to http://www.gnu.org/software/autoconf/manual/autoconf-2.59/index.html

  1. This is a versioned directory, and I want to update by web page
     whenever a new version is released.  I would like to link to
     the latest manual, whatever version it is.

     Are versioned directories needed at all?  
     (My understanding is that the GCS says to puts the manual
     under manual/index.html)

     Otherwise, can't we have a symlink from 
     or something like this?  

  2. http://www.gnu.org/software/autoconf/manual/autoconf-2.59/index.html
     Does not offer any HTML version of the doc!

Are the above meant?  Can this be fixed?  (It's OK if the answer
is "do it yourself" instead of "done" :))

BTW, the home page also confusedly states

| The following software packages are either required to use
| Autoconf or optional to take full advantage of Autoconf:
|     * GNU m4
|     * Perl
