1. Preface

Imprimatur is a set of Texinfo macros and Makefile rules to verify consistency and, to certain extent, completeness of Texinfo documentation.

This package was inspired in part by François Pinard's ‘rendition.texi’ file we used in GNU tar's documentation. It was developed between 2005 and 2011 while writing documentation for several other free software projects its author maintains: GNU Mailutils, Dico and Pies, to name a few. It was reorganized into a standalone submodule project in 2011.
