Missing man pages

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686)
The iproute package has no manpages for the commands (iproute, tc)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -ql iproute |grep man
Expected Results: a few files at least :-)
Waiting for maintainer's response (Alexey Kuznetsov <email@example.com>)
I've talked with Alexey on this; he has created lots of docs in *.ps form (%doc), and man pages aren't forthcoming.
I started writing man page about ip(8), but only got about 1/3 way when I realized the syntax was so complex,
it wouldn't be of much use; better just to create a short page with pointers to 'ip help' commands and the existing
(btw, if you want what I did, just email me; I did global options, ip link, ip address and started on ip route)
As mentioned in #30678, I'm attaching the beginnings of the page I was writing in
case someone is interested.
Created attachment 22909 [details]
beginnings of ip(8) man page. Sigh.
Still no man page....
Considering how important this utility is, it would seem to be worth someones
time write a man page. For that matter, how hard would it be to build a man
page from the tex source?
FYI: Over at lartc.org they made some manpages for the tc utils :
Even a man page that only said "See the reference documents:
ip reference: /usr/share/doc/iproute-2.2.4/ip-cref.ps"
etc. would be helpful.
Updated to latest stable release and added a very simple manpage.
Available via rawhide real soon now(tm).
Read ya, Phil
