Description Terje Røsten 2007-07-02 22:09:36 UTC
Description of problem:

Emacs package is using alternatives to let users switch between etags
implementations, however the etags manual page is not handle by the
alternatives framework.

This can be done using the --slave option, (see e,g. sendmail/postfix packages).

A simple patch to do this is attached.

Note: I had to move the alternatives command to %posttrans,

if not the link 

/usr/share/man/man1/etags.1.gz -> /etc/alternatives/etags-etagsman

would not be created by alternatives.

BTW: does it make sense to have %changelog going back ten years?

(Abuse Emacs 22,1 release to make much shorter?)
