Description Alain Portal 2004-11-17 11:29:20 EST
Description of problem: 
This package provides french man pages that are two years old!!! 
Do you think it's serious? 
Near two years ago (2003-01-14), when I saw this bug 
http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=66666 I sent an 
email to Trond Eivind Glomsrxd (teg@redhat.com) to alert him that the 
French man page translation project WASN'T dead as he thank and I 
sent him location of the update tarball. 
And I saw that since two years, the man-pages-fr package is built 
with those same tarballs. 
If nobody want to build seriously this package, let me do it! 
French Linux users need also an uptodate documentation. 
So, I repeat what I said two years ago: 
+ French LDP man pages are maintained by Christophe Blaess. 
Project homepage is http://perso.club-internet.fr/ccb/man/index.html 
(in french, of course) 
Tarball available at  
(You can note that release number is the same than LDP since 2003-07) 
ftp://ftp.lip6.fr/pub/linux/french/docs/ is a mirror. Please, kick 
out this url from spec, this isn't the main url. 
+ French non-LDP man pages are maintained by Gérard Delafond 
Project home page is http://www.delafond.org/traducmanfr/ (in french, 
of course) 
Tarball available at 
There is no version number, tarball may be updated every day...

Attached is an updated spec file I've just made, based on the last available one
from the development tree. I've attached it instead of a patch since there are
many major changes.

Comment 8 Alain Portal 2005-07-08 04:21:59 EDT
Thanks for your contribution to this package. Hoping it will be released soon. 
Comment 9 Bernd Groh 2005-07-08 06:30:41 EDT
My apologies for the state of this package, and thanks for all the recent
contributions, I've seriously planned to find somebody to maintain it before FC5.
Comment 10 Alain Portal 2005-07-08 07:10:17 EDT
If you don't have time enough, it should be a good idea.

Comment 12 Dimitri Papadopoulos 2005-08-30 05:15:36 EDT
Note that the current man-pages-fr package contains an "orphan" man page, that
is, a man page for a piece of software that isn't distributed by Fedora:

$ locate latex2rtf
$ rpm -qf /usr/share/man/fr/man1/latex2rtf.1.gz

It would be worth checking man pages do not contain documentation for software
that is not distributed by Fedora. This seems to disturb users. Or maybe add
latex2rtf to the tetex package?
Comment 13 Alain Portal 2005-11-02 10:37:37 EST
Sorry for a so late answer. 
In fact, latex2rtf is a package (http://latex2rtf.sourceforge.net/). 
Sure, the better place for a man page translation is in the source package. 
But I know that sometimes it is very difficult to insert man page translation 
in the source. 
For example, I never got any answer from the rp-pppoe author when I ask him to 
insert the translations I've made.

FC5 is released, but man-pages-fr is still 3 years old. 
Comment 19 Alain Portal 2006-05-05 03:06:40 EDT
French man pages are now split in two separate tarballs
+ a strictly conforming to the LDP man pages:
+ a tarball to hold all the other french man pages that were in the 
man-fr-1.67.0 tarball.
This new tarball will come soon and will be here:

Spec files for version 1.69.1

As french LDP man pages are utf8 encoded and additionnal man pages are ascii or
latin1 encoded, build requires utrac.

With a new package to split manpages, because manfr held manpages that were 
not provided by LDP
