Bug#416584: utf8-migration-tool: man page does not say what the tool does

tags 416584 + patch


I was checking the BTS looking for a way I could help, and it seems this one is quite easy. I doubt a lot of users care about that package, but it didn't take me too long to review the source code and execute the binary in order to find out what it does.

I attach a patch against the manpage. Please feel free to correct it since English isn't my native language. I can build a package if you want, but I'm quite new to this and I'm not sure I'll be able to connect to the Internet for the next 10 days.

 .BR utf8migrationtool
 is a wizard that simplifies upgrading a Debian system
 towards UTF\-8 locales.
+First it updates the login configuration (in ~/.dmrc) so the default locale
+uses UTF-8 encoding, then it checks every filename under the user's home
+directory and converts it to UTF-8 if needed. Note that it only affects
+filenames, not file contents.
