Bug#119821: [PROPOSAL] Postscript files requirements
Version: N/A; reported 2001-11-16
I propose that we add a section under the "documentation" chapter, to
request a minimum of coherence and sanity of PostScript files.
My problem is that some maintainers (probably for paper-saving
reasons, which in itself is a valuable idea) ship 2-up versions of
postscript files, whereas others ship 1-up versions.
Problem with 2-up is that it is meant for printing, and not ideal for
online browsing. I suggest that we require not to feed postscript
documents through a n-up-izer tool.
In the same direction of allowing easy browsing of ps docs, I suggest
that we require ps docs to contain orientation and format information.
Note: incidentally, it is possible that some n-up-izer tools (namely
psutils) strip this information.
