|0003247||Doomseeker||[All Projects] Bug||public||2017-09-01 17:30||2017-09-07 19:36|
|Platform||x86_64 (really cross-platform)||OS||Debian GNU/Linux||OS Version||buster/sid|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0003247: Doomseeker's manual page (mdoc/groff) is missing or incomplete|
|Description||Doomseeker's binary executable should come with at least an English manual page, either in mdoc format (*BSD) or groff (GNU/Linux) which can be read offline with man(1) utility. It should have as much information as possible about using and configuring the program as feasible and found useful. Here's some recommendations for sections to include:|
Sections may be omitted as needed. Even a very minimal man page may be helpful and may be expanded in the future.
The build system should also install it to the appropriate directory (somewhere under /usr/share/man/).
Lintian tag (warning): binary-without-manpage (severity normal, certainty possible)
|Steps To Reproduce|
$ man doomseeker No manual entry for doomseeker See 'man 7 undocumented' for help when manual pages are not available.
|Additional Information||Note: Unix man pages only support text and simple formatting. No images, no video (unless you instruct to view or play something already existing on the filesystem).|
The program arguments window in graphical interface navigation Help → Program Args may be an useful resource to start from. The online help pages (https://wiki.zandronum.com/Doomseeker) may also be useful.
It's gui so I would expect it to have help in the window mod.
But there could be a pointer from man I guess.
I just read from Debian Policy Manual v188.8.131.52 section 12.1: The man pages should be installed in nroff source form.
I personally very much prefer mdoc format over others, but I don't mind doing the conversion by hand if needed.
