    why no simply take everything that is in the directory?

Right, if images are to be handled, we should take everything in the
output directory, not just *.html.

    Also, at the end, we empty a directory, and then mv *html files
    from one to the other, and kill the empty directory.  Why didn't
    we simply rename that directory?  

As long we check that $outdir/html_node does not already exist, I guess
it's equivalent (and simpler).
    Actually, why would we rename it instead of simply passing to -o the
    wanted directory, instead of creating this directory?

No, this has nothing to do with -o.  gendocs runs makeinfo to generate
the split HTML, which is created in a build subdirectory PACKAGE.html/.
This happens inside the source/build tree.  Then we want to move the
results to the "target" $outdir directory ("manual/" by default), just
as we move the .pdf and the rest.

    My questions are related to changes I am making to import the needed

TIA :).
