Description Alan Somers freebsd_committer 2019-03-19 15:58:47 UTC
sysutils/fusefs-libs installs fusermount.1.gz, ulockmgr_server.1.gz, and mount.fuse.8.gz even though it doesn't install the programs they document.  Those man pages are not only a waste of space, they could confuse uses by distracting them from mount_fusefs, which is what they should be using instead.  The port should not install those man pages.
Comment 1 Alan Somers freebsd_committer 2019-07-31 16:08:32 UTC
ping.  Can we remove those man pages from the port?
Comment 2 Ed Maste freebsd_committer 2019-07-31 16:19:18 UTC
Sounds good to me, port should not install man pages for programs it does not install. With no maintainer response you should be good to get a ports committer approval for timeout.
