debathena-pyhesiodfs: pyhesiodfs has no manpage

Description

The pyhesiodfs command in the debathena-pyhesiodfs package has no manpage.

Also, maybe it should be in /usr/sbin or /usr/lib, because running your own instance of it isn't particularly useful.

  • Milestone set to IAP 2010

It doesn't want or need a manpage. We shoudl either WONTFIX this, or move it into /usr/lib{,exec}. The latter is more likely to break things.

Debian policy  does require a man page for every program:

“Each program, utility, and function should have an associated manual page included in the same package. It is suggested that all configuration files also have a manual page included as well. Manual pages for protocols and other auxiliary things are optional.

If no manual page is available, this is considered as a bug and should be reported to the Debian Bug Tracking System (the maintainer of the package is allowed to write this bug report themselves, if they so desire). Do not close the bug report until a proper man page is available.”

So I think we should leave this open, and just unmilestone it for Karmic Deploy if it won’t happen then.

  • Status changed from committed to development

0.0.r167-0debathena7 ->development. This also includes geofft's patch to never OOM-kill pyhesiodfs from r24948, which apparently never got built, because we suck.

I don't believe you.

w20-575-2:~ geofft$ man debathena-pyhesiodfs
No manual entry for debathena-pyhesiodfs
w20-575-2:~ geofft$ dpkg -L debathena-pyhesiodfs | grep -i man
w20-575-2:~ geofft$

"Just because I forgot to list it in the install file doesn't mean it's not there"

Fixed in r25166.

No, really, fixed in r25168 and uploaded in -0debathena8 in dev.

And yes, it's actually there:
