Description Mike MacCana 2005-10-26 04:14:39 EDT
Description of problem:
man 5 main.cf

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Look for a section 5 document describing the main.cf file format named after
the config file, like every other man page (including master.cf)
Actual results:
No man pages found.

Expected results:
Something useful...wait, 'man 5 postconf' 

       The  Postfix main.cf configuration file specifies a small subset of all
       the parameters that control the operation of the Postfix  mail  system.
       Parameters not specified in main.cf are left at their default values.

       The general format of the main.cf file is as follows:

Grrr. Stab. 

Additional info:
A simple redirect would fix this. Create /usr/share/man/man5/main.cf

Contents are the following line:
.so man5/postconf.5
