Description Tom Mitchell 2004-08-07 10:59:43 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.2)

Description of problem:
sylpheed needs a man page for "man -k" to let folks
discover this nifty tool.

If I look at the faq file:///usr/share/sylpheed/faq/en/sylpheed-faq-1.html
I can learn that
  "Sylpheed is an e-mail client & news reader based on GTK+"

If I try and discover this tool exists with "man -k" or "apropos"
I do not find anything.

Sylpheed needs a simple man page: 
     Sylpheed is an e-mail client & news reader based on GTK+

And pointers to the rich ocumentation in 
would cover the bases.  The man page does not need to
duplicate the existing documentation... just reference it.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man -k sylpheed; man Sylpheed

Actual Results:  
$ man sylpheed
No manual entry for sylpheed

Expected Results:  I would expect a man page for such a nifty program.
   # man -k sylpheed
     Sylpheed is an e-mail client & news reader based on GTK+
