Yes, the DSA has decided to take down the service due to issues
in glinka (although not necessarily attributed to the man.cgi script)

I've not had time yet to check what happened and fix it.



https://manpages.debian.org/cgi-bin/man.cgi still giving a 404 error.
As I don't always have my Debian machine available, I've been using https://manned.org as a substitute. Also I find the HTML version more accessible.

There are minor, but significant to me, differences between Debian version and the manned.org version.

In the interim, are Debian version of man pages available elsewhere on the net.

Thank you.
