Hi Fritz,

Thanks for your note.

    Of course one can build an appendix with @unnumbered etc. but then

Yes, and I actually think that is the best approach.

    commands like @appendixsection will have to be replaced as well. I

There is no need to use @appendixsection or @unnumberedsection.  Just
use @section in all contexts, it should work fine.  (If not, let me know.)

    suggest to only number appendices when there's more than a  single

Thanks for the suggestion.  I see your point, and it might not have been
a bad choice back in the beginning of Texinfo, but I don't think we
should make the change now:

1) Changing the output based solely on an implicit fact about the input
   doesn't seem desirable in principle to me.
2) You can get the output of "Appendix: Some Title" via @unnumbered, and
   in fact some manuals do this now.
3) Texinfo's current behavior around this has been the same since day 1.
   I don't want to change it now without much more compelling reasons.

    but the header line in the appendix always reads "Appendix A:",
    without the respective appendix subsection following

Sounds like a bug.  I will take a look at this as soon as I can.

Thanks again,
