Description Trond Eivind Glomsrød 2003-09-29 04:24:48 EDT
Currently, the man page viewer is bundled with heavy daily/weekly cron jobs. 
Separating these different facets into different packages will allow users to
choose what they want.
Comment 1 Eido Inoue 2004-02-19 11:54:19 EST
we decided not to separate these to keep the package count from
unnecessarily escalating
