Further to this:
stephen:~$ cat wrongmanpages
undocumented.7 (not really apposite as /usr/doc *is* a valid
place for undocumented.7 to point to, /usr/share/doc
should be listed first maybe, or even listed at all?)
dhelp_parse (again, justified use of /usr/doc)
LDP.7 (probably justified)
A very quick and dirty list which only deals with manpages I happen to
have installed on my system. While I can generate a list like this for
a system that is already installed I have no idea how to go about doing
this for the entire archive in .deb format. Any pointers in this area
would be appreciated.
I make this 48 manpages, of which 7 refer to /usr/doc in a 'correct'
manner. That leaves 40 or so manpages. Editing them shouldn't be too
much work at all. Assuming there are more of these in the archive and
if someone with some idea of how to generate a list of all the manpages
that need editing can give me a hand to create a TODO for this task,
then I will update all these manpages.
I will start on the 40 or so which I have on my own system tomorrow
unless I hear any major objections.
