Bug#150562: ITP: info2man -- Convert GNU info files to POD or man pages

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : info2man
  Version         : 1.1
  Upstream Author : Cameron Simpson <cs@zip.com.au>
* URL             : http://www.zip.com.au/~cs/css/index.html#s-text-info2x
* License         : [1]
  Description     : Convert GNU info files to POD or man pages

This package provides the info2pod tool to convert GNU info documents into
Perl's POD (Plain Old Documentation) format. From there, they can be
approximately converted to manual pages to be viewed by people who prefer
conventional pagers to the standard info viewer or Emacs.

The info2man tool uses info2pod and pod2man to perform the conversion in
one step.

[1] I don't actually know what the licence is yet; the entry on
    Freshmeat just says "Freeware". :( I'll get in touch with the author
    and ask; if it turns out to be non-free, I'll probably set this off
    to RFP.
