Description Frank Ch. Eigler 2007-03-01 17:23:55 EST
dejagnu's texinfo documentation does not appear to be built/packaged,
even though e.g. runtest.1 says it should be there.

dejagnu.noarch                           1:1.4.4-5.1            installed
Comment 1 Petr Machata 2007-03-07 07:54:40 EST
This is written in doc/Makefile in the dejagnu distribution:

# FIXME: We need to generate an info doc from SGML somehow, but for
# now, don't install the old texinfo document from version 1.3
# info_TEXINFOS = dejagnu.texi

I "fixed" it by removing the mentions of dejagnu.info from the manpage.  Note
that dejagnu ships pdf document (/usr/share/doc/dejagnu-1.4.4/overview.pdf) with
detailed description, which can be in limited way used as a dejagnu.info
Comment 2 Tom Tromey 2007-11-09 13:33:36 EST
I looked at the dejagnu cvs repository, and now they seem to generate
dejagnu.texi from the xml:

doc/dejagnu.texi: $(XML)
	$(DOCBOOK2TEXI) --string-param directory-description="The GNU testing
framework." --string-param directory-category="Programming"
	mv dejagnu.texi $(srcdir)/doc

... so, would you mind restoring the info file?  Like many Emacs users,
I find info to be much friendlier than the alternative formats -- certainly
much more usable than a PDF.

I can file a new bug if you'd prefer.

Updated in rawhide, waiting for push in F8. Ok for you?
Comment 4 Tom Tromey 2007-11-12 15:09:00 EST
Sounds great!
FWIW I checked rawhide but didn't see it; I'll check again in a couple days.
