Description molter 2003-04-11 15:40:08 UTC
Port graphics/netpbm contains a manpage netpbm.1 that isn't installed. Fix: Apply following patch How-To-Repeat: Install the port and type "man netpbm" ;-)

State Changed From-To: open->feedback The manpage just points to the documentation on the Homepage. It is imho not useful to install it.

I agree that the "manpage" isn't very useful, but I still think it is a lot better than nothing. Whithout manpage (as the situation is today) the user is left to himself to figure out where to find documentation. If he is smart enough, he will look at the port Makefile to see if there is a web site for the project. If he is not smart enough, he will be without documentation. With the manpage, and the USERDOC file (both are installed by this patch), he can quickly find a pointer to the documentation. Marco

Hi, could you either commit the patch (if you are convinced by my explanation) or close the PR anyway? I prefer to close this PR than leave it rot :-) thanks Marco
