It is originated at Debian's 'iproute' package so there should be no
legal issues. The complete manpage and this of tc can be extracted from


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Great, will include in next iproute build.

Ah, was just going to file the same bug.

Btw. the master site for these is http://www.lartc.org/manpages/,
quickly checking the debian patch it seems to have the latest ones
so probably no need to change anything but might be useful to note
this in the specfile.
