I downloaded bashref.texi from your site.  I believe that the following
is a documentation bug:

* Bash: (bash).                     The GNU Bourne-Again SHell.
@end direntry

After adding that line to the dir file and doing "C-h i" in emacs, that
line did _appear_, but doing RETURN on it I got the complaint that the
Info file bash.info did not exist.  No surprise.  I believe that the
thing between the () should be the filename bashref, so:

* Bash: (bashref).                     The GNU Bourne-Again SHell.
@end direntry

After making this change to bashref.info and adding the new line to the
"dir" file, I was able to start to read the manual without problems in
Emacs using "C-h i".  You probably should make this change to
bashref.texi and regenerate bashref.info.  For me as a user, changing
bashref.info was sufficient.  (Just putting the correct entry in dir was

I hope you do not get this bug report twice.  I first tried using
bashbug, but got confused by it and I do not believe I managed to get it
