Agreed. So that takes care of the question of including the HTML file
with the comparison of the two.

As far as the doc package is concerned, should I include the separate
Symbola.pdf with all the glyphs? Would it be preferable to include the
MS Word file (after a conversion) which also contains a changelog?
Should I package both or neither?

Also, should I start the process for a non-responsive maintainer from
the beginning, do I need to file a new bug or can I take it from
starting a thread here?
