Omit edition numbers and dates in manuals
These seem to cause more confusion than they cure; e.g., https://shop.fsf.org/books/gnu-emacs-manual-18th-edition-v-261 currently advertises "18th edition" even as it points to https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/pdf/emacs.pdf which says "Seventeenth Edition". It is simpler and less confusing to stick to one version number like "26.3". If we need a separate edition number for each printed manual for some reason (marketing?) we can put “@ifset printed-edition” around anything specific to the printed editions. (as opposed to online PDF copies). * doc/emacs/emacs.texi (EDITION): * doc/lispintro/emacs-lisp-intro.texi (edition-number, update-date): * doc/lispref/elisp.texi (VERSION, DATE): Remove, and remove uses.
