Comment 6 Yoana Ruseva 2015-08-31 07:58:45 EDT

The article about rhel-tools mentions that it contains man pages: 

https://access.redhat.com/articles/1336853 (in the Overview section)

I am not sure if the respective articles about rsyslog and sadc should mention that they do NOT contain man pages, since this is expected behaviour.

Additionally, there are two other places where a note can go:

1) the Release Notes, under "Other Notes", explaining that no man pages is the expected behaviour, unless there is a workaround as in the case of rhel-tools

2) the "Running Super Privileged Containers..." article: https://access.redhat.com/articles/1342703

I think both should be updated.
Comment 7 Yoana Ruseva 2015-08-31 08:52:14 EDT
Ok, after consulting Eliska, I learned it's about the base images, and in this case the most appropriate places are the Release Notes and the "Recommended Practices for Container Development" article: https://access.redhat.com/articles/1483053.
