I agree. For me, that means Emacs info, but I suppose that *could* be
considered optional... ;-)
Despite my defence of PDF, I usually find HTML to be the most
convenient format for browsing hyperlinked *text* documentation, for
which I use Lynx, Netscrape, or W3, depending on bandwidth. It's
certainly a widely-supported, platform-independent format.
OTOH, HTML is a pain to distribute (gzipped tar file), and takes a lot
of space after it's installed. (And for our own technical docs, we
need something that can display vector drawings, like PS or PDF.)
I suspect that 'very minimum' means man pages for *nix, text files
(no screen codes) for any other OS.
