Bug#655010: ITP: missing-manpages -- manual pages for software missing them

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: "brian m. carlson" <sandals@crustytoothpaste.net>

* Package name    : missing-manpages
  Version         : 1
  Upstream Author : brian m. carlson <sandals@crustytoothpaste.net>
* URL             : https://github.com/bk2204/missing-manpages

  Description     : manual pages for software missing them

missing-manpages provides free manual pages for software that does not
have them.

Note that this is the name of the source package.  Currently only manual
pages for GCC are available, but it's possible manpages for other
packages will be included at some point in the future.  This is being
packaged separately from gcc because its maintainer is not interested in
including manpages in the gcc-4.6 package.  The exact name for the
binary package containing the gcc manpages is yet to be determined
pending feedback from debian-gcc (CC'd).

The description for the binary package is as follows:

documentation for the GNU Compiler Collection

This package contains manual pages for the GNU Compiler Collection.  The
upstream manual pages cannot be included in main for license reasons, so
these (incomplete) manual pages have been written from scratch to
replace them.
