Description Eduardo 2017-07-14 09:47:02 EDT
Description of problem:
The file '/etc/squid/squid.conf.documented' is missing in the default location.
This file is mentioned in the manpage of squid, therefore I must assume is available on the system.

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

Version     : 3.5.20
Release     : 2.el7_3.3
Architecture: x86_64

How reproducible:
Install squid

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install squid
2. ls /etc/squid/squid.conf.documented

Actual results:

The file can be found in /usr/share/doc/squid-3.5.20/squid.conf.documented

Expected results:
A symbolic link in /etc/squid pointing to the actual file.

You are right, this file is specified in man page, but it is missing at specified location.

From man page:
"This manual page only lists the command line arguments.  For details on how to configure Squid see the file /etc/squid/squid.conf.documented, the Squid wiki  FAQ and examples at http://wiki.squid-cache.org/ , or the configuration manual on the Squid home page http://www.squid-cache.org/Doc/config/"
Comment 4 Luboš Uhliarik 2017-10-02 10:02:21 EDT
Since, we consider this file as a documentation, I will leave it in %doc dir (/usr/share/doc/squid-%{version}), as it is in Fedora and previous RHEL versions, but I will change appropriate location in squid.8 manpage.
