Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 207964
Need a 'man6x' section

Description of problem:
Need a '6x' section for man pages
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The bsd-games and xscreensaver-extras packages both contain a 'worms.6' man
page. To prevent a file conflict when installing both packages, it would be
nice to put the xscreensaver-extras pages in a '6x' section instead section '6'.
See bugs #205796 for the xscreensaver-extras bug report discussing this.
To be clear, I'm just asking that this package create and own a new
man package has man6x in section list:
there will not be any problem with man pages in 6x section.
man-pages package have no man page which belongs to 6x (6x should be used by
xorg packages), so there is no need to have /usr/share/man/man6x directory in
You're right, man-pages isn't the right place to put this. Ownership of
/usr/share/man/man6x should probably be done in the filesystem package instead.
I'll refile this bug against the filesystem package.
