Texinfo 7.0.1 released

We have released version 7.0.1 of Texinfo, the GNU documentation format.

This package contains tools to produce documentation in various
formats, including HTML and PDF, from source files in the Texinfo
format.  Texinfo is a text-based format with commands for marking text,
document structuring and indexing.

This is a minor release containing minimal changes from the previous
release (7.0).

This is the first time we have issued such a release.  We have tried
to show restraint in including any changes in order to make breakages
less likely and to make it easier for people to review the changes.
We hope to enable quicker fixes for known, serious issues in official
releases.  We will also include any updated translations.

This release process corresponds to a new use of "git" branches
in the package development, where development continues on
the master branch, and only selected commits are added to the
release branch.  The git repository is to be found at Savannah

If there are further minor releases following on from the 7.0 release,
the version numbers will follow the pattern 7.0.X.  Any future major
releases will have version numbers of the form 7.X.
