From: Joey Hess <joey@kitenet.net>
Subject: libnewt-perl: woefully incomplete man page
To: submit@bugs.debian.org
X-Mailer: bug 3.2.10

Package: libnewt-perl
Version: 1.08-1
Severity: normal

The manual page doesn't document things like Form->SetHeight,
Form->SetBackground, Component->GetComponent, Radiogroup->GetComponent,
and Panel->Move. It doesn't document the fact that Newt::<c newt function> can
be used to call raw newt functions, skipping the OO veneer. It says that
scrollbars can be added to forms, but doesn't document how to make formas
at all.

It would make far more sense to change Newt.pm so every single public
function in the whole module had pod documentation above it doumenting
what it is for.

The Debian package also doesn't include test.pl, which is a much better
example than install.
