Re: Removing the manpage requirement for GUI programs?

Hello everybody,

for the record, I have sumbitted to the Debian fork of the man system the idea
of tapping into the desktop menu entries when a program has no manpage.


“For those who care about manpages”, I would like to point out that the
original version of the man system had no update since 2007
(http://primates.ximian.com/~flucifredi/man/), and that the fork used by Debian
has only 3 DDs listed as contributors (http://man-db.nongnu.org/). So if you
want to continue reading manpages in 2020, it is perhaps time to help upstream.

Have a nice week-end,
