      * doc/lispref/text.texi (Interpolated Strings): Fix typos.  Don't
      document modifier for default space padding as it's redundant and
      inconsistent with the docstring and implementation of format-spec.

      Don’t use “constant” for values you shouldn’t change · 6ac2326e
      Paul Eggert authored
      Inspired by patch proposed by Dmitry Gutov (Bug#40671#393)
      and by further comments by him and by Michael Heerdegen
      in the same bug report.
      * doc/lispintro/emacs-lisp-intro.texi (setcar):
      Don’t push mutability here.
      * doc/lispref/eval.texi (Self-Evaluating Forms, Quoting)
      * doc/lispref/lists.texi (Modifying Lists):
      * doc/lispref/objects.texi (Lisp Data Types, Mutability):
      * doc/lispref/sequences.texi (Array Functions, Vectors):
      * doc/lispref/strings.texi (String Basics, Modifying Strings):
      Don’t use the word “constant” to describe all values that
      a program should not change.
      * doc/lispref/objects.texi (Mutability):
      Rename from “Constants and Mutability”.  All uses changed.
      In a footnote, contrast the Emacs behavior with that of Common
      Lisp, Python, etc. for clarity, and say the goal is to be nicer.

      Fix documentation related to 'command-switch-alist'. · 406fb074
      Philipp Stephani authored
      While there, add a unit test to verify the behavior.
      * doc/lispref/os.texi (Command-Line Arguments): Fix documentation: the
      option string in 'command-switch-alist' does include leading hyphens.
      Also mention that 'command-switch-alist' parsing ignores equals signs
      in options.
      * test/lisp/startup-tests.el
      (startup-tests/command-switch-alist): New unit test.
