According to Node itemize in the texinfo manual, @bullet should be the default for @itemize. However, this is not what happens in TeX output.

I am using the texinfo.tex from 4.2 on GNU/Linux, teTeX 1.0.7 (Web2C 7.3.1).

Also, prepending a comma to pass it as an argument (to a macro), in this case, does not have the desired behavior.

i.e., the macro is

@macro gnunotice{year, holder}
Copyright @copyright{} \year\ \holder\.
@end quotation

@center @strong{Verbatim copying and distribution of this entire article is permitted }
@center @strong{in any medium, provided this notice is preserved.}
@end macro

and here is a sample invocation, on a line by itself.

@gnunotice{1996\, 1997\, 1998\, 1999\, 2001, Free Software Foundation\, Inc.}

Neither of these bugs apply in makeinfo.

The main clarity, for me, was the sense that if you want to have a
decent life, you don't want to have bits of it closed off. This whole
idea of having the freedom to go in and to fix something and modify
it, whatever it may be, it really makes a difference. It makes one
think happily that after you've lived a few years that what you've
done is worthwhile. Because otherwise it just gets taken away and
thrown out or abandoned or, at the very least, you no longer have any
relation to it. It's like losing a bit of your life.
