Description "FeRD" (Frank Dana) 2017-07-15 19:34:35 EDT
Description of problem:
There is currently no man page provided for the /usr/bin/weblint script, which installs with perl-HTML-Lint. However, the HTML::Lint(3pm) man page does contain some rudimentary documentation on weblint, and would be a "better than nothing" result for `man weblint` than the current response, which is nothing.

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

How reproducible:
`man weblint`

Actual results:
"No manual entry for weblint"

Expected results:
Same as `man 3 HTML::Lint`

Additional info:
Man pages can be configured as references to other man pages in two ways.

1. A symlink can be created in /usr/share/man/$SECTION/ under a new name that points to the existing documentation. However, since the link source would be in a different section than the target, this would require a symlink through ../ and is not advisable. 

2. The preferable method, in the case of cross-section references, is to install a file /usr/share/man/man1/weblint.1.gz containing (before compression) a single line of text:

.so man3/HTML::Lint.3pm

This will establish weblint(1) as an alias for the HTML::Lint(3pm) man page, and it will be displayed when the user runs `man weblint`.
Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2017-11-16 13:59:10 EST
This message is a reminder that Fedora 25 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 25. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '25'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 25 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2017-12-12 05:22:33 EST
Fedora 25 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2017-12-12. Fedora 25 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
