are questions about programs from the "Emacs toolchain" allowed? Specifically, would a question about Texinfo be acceptable, given that it's a standard format for writing Emacs documentation?

I found Do we take questions on "helper" programs? which has no answer, but seems to imply that the scope of this site be limited strictly to Emacs.

What is the "official" position? Where can I read about it?

    There is no official position. As a baseline, I would consider it on-topic as long as you're trying to use that helper program as part of the Emacs toolchain (as in, you're compiling documentation for an Emacs package). That's kind of a bad criteria, but it's the best I can come up with.
