Description Marko Myllynen 2017-04-21 07:52:41 UTC
Description of problem:
etcd.rpm comes with zero man pages although there are some etcd man pages available online. We should include man page for each etcd.rpm command and configuration file.

Hi Marko,

that sounds good to me. Can you point me to the online man pages? So far I have not been aware of any existing man pages besides the upstream documentation.

Comment 3 Marko Myllynen 2017-04-21 08:49:21 UTC
These I found with quick googling:


I'm not sure where they are coming from. I couldn't find a page for etcd.conf.


Comment 4 Jan Chaloupka 2017-04-21 09:02:33 UTC
Thanks. Let's see why upstream has to say about it.


Comment 5 Jan Chaloupka 2017-11-06 22:38:56 UTC
Reviving https://github.com/coreos/etcd/issues/7796. With some simple hacks it's quite simple to generate man pages for etcdctl command fully automatically. Can't say the same for etcd. However, once properly done, even the etcd.conf man page could be easily generated.

Comment 6 Jan Chaloupka 2017-11-07 16:45:59 UTC
The etcd.conf file is itself verbose enough. The etcd.conf man be added eventually.

Hi Jan,

Check it with rpm -ql and the man pages are there and use man to check the context. Seems there is one little problem, the title in the corner is not correct.
Take etcdctl3-put as example. The title for it is etcdctl3 but not etcdctl3-put.
Can you help to check this?

etcdctl3(1)                                                                                                                        etcdctl3(1)

       ETCDCTL=3 etcdctl-put - Puts the given key into the store
Others seems OK for me.

Comment 9 Joy Pu 2017-11-20 12:46:25 UTC
Discussed with Jan and report another bug for the .TH problem as it is auto generated. Other part of the man pages looks good. So set this to verified.
