    Is this discrepency a bug?

It's open to interpretation, but we did at least know that was going to

Patrice wanted to use 5.00 (well, 5.0 next time) in the sources.  Here's
his explanation:

  The reasons for not using the PACKAGE_VERSION directly are that there is
  no need to change the DTD version for each (pre-)release since the DTD
  may change at a different pace, and also that each change of the DTD
  means a need to regenerate test case results, so having it change with
  each pretest would be quite inconvenient.
  In any case, the fact that it is a DTD not already present on the
  internet is a good thing, it means that the user will have to use the
  one that comes from the sources (CVS version or tarball) which is good
  in case the DTD changes between releases.

As for texinfo.cat, my previous query about it met with no real
information.  So I think it is not really used anywhere.  So it hardly
matters what version it says.  


P.S. to all: I'll be offline the next few days.  Back Friday.  More
pretest reports still welcome :).  Maybe, just maybe, we can get 5.0 out
before 12/31 ...
