Package: tkvnc
Version: 0.6-7.1
Severity: normal

README is more informative than man page.  I see this as being a vary small
app, so the correct action would be to append/insert the important parts of
the README into the man page.  AFAIK the README is not needed, it should go.
It's bloated with build instructions, only usefull with the source not the

Important parts I see are vnchost this should be a man page all by it self
IMHO.  Also There is no mention of global config(/etc)?  This would be a
seperat bug I have yet to discover.

Other chevats that should be in the man page, that are not documented.
Handeling of servers that are not responding, up or running.

Also gktsu(or whatever) has a password interface, maby MANY programs could
make use of a common API?  I use a password file there is no documantation
on any of this, only to point out that there are BUGS in this area(also not
in the man page!).
