Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. [info|man] [aspell|aspell-import|ispell|pspell-config|run-with-aspell|spell|word-list-compress]
2. No manual or pages exist for these tools.
Even weirder, the /usr/share/doc/aspell-0.50.5/README file appears to be an
ASCII snapshot of the compilation instructions from the aspell manual!
This looks like a oddity of the README file shipped with aspell-0.50.5.tar.gz,
which is the same as the file aspell-0.50.5/manual/man-text/2_Getting.txt in the
I think we should package the contents of aspell-0.50.5/manual, which has *lots*
of documentation on aspell, in /usr/share/doc/aspell-0.50.5. The contents of
the man-text or man-html subdirectories alone would be useful, especially since
this version of aspell doesn't seem to include normal info or man pages.
