Description Michele Baldessari 2008-05-20 16:09:41 EDT
All the binaries in fedora-ds-base lack manpages.
I've given an initial goal at making them (they could use some review, as with
some tools it's hard to understand what they do at all, i.e. migratecred)

Anyways, here they are ;)

This is great!  I will need to get a CLA in order to accept these files and
patches into Fedora DS - see http://directory.fedoraproject.org/wiki/Contributing

Hi Rich,

I've just sent a signed mail to fedora-legal with the CLA pdf with my signature. My key is signed by a 
dozen people, so I hope it's enough proof of identity.

Let me know if you need anything else.

The Fedora Docs Team uses OPL for everything they do:



Since this is for the Fedora Directory Server, I'm going to use OPL for the man
pages as well.

Hi Rich,

no problem on my side. Feel free to change the license. Let me know if you need anything else.

Branch: HEAD
Fix Description: This adds man pages for the command line utilities.  The
configure.ac diffs were a little bit tricky - apparently, mandir is not set to
a correct default value, so we have to make sure we set a reasonable default
value it if the user has not set it (e.g. rpmbuild will override it with
