I guess I'm a loss of what to do next, if anything. I haven't been doing anything with CVS as collectl is just a couple of scripts. If it would help I could send you a copy of the latest tarball.
So right now I guess the big questions for me are:
- are the man pages ok the way they are without having to worry about explicitly quoting everywhere I use a hyphen? In fact, my keyboard only has a single character, do other keyboards actually differentiate?
- I now have 3 more man pages for 3 utilities nobody every would use except me and each now references the others. If this isn't necessary I'd be happy to remove them
- is it ok to keep my utility scripts in /usr/share/collectl/util so I don't corrupt /usr/bin with files nobody really ever uses? The man pages I wrote for them DO include the explicit path so people will know how to find them if they really want to.
- am I missing anything else?
