Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 583644
.pod files are packaged under /usr/share/doc/sudo*, and man page for sudoers.ldap is missing
Last modified: 2011-01-13 18:08:00 EST
Description of problem:
I can see the following files in /usr/share/doc/sudo-1.7.2p1:
These are "raw" POD files in the upstream tarball. They aren't meant to be read by humans, and they also contain macros that are yet to be expanded according to configuration options. So they shouldn't exist on a live system. Fortunately there are man pages for sudoers, sudo and visudo. However, there's no man page for sudoers.ldap in the Red Hat package.
Please don't include the POD files in the package, and make sure a man page is built from sudoers.ldap.pod and included among other sudo man pages.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Prior to this update, the manual page for sudoers.ldap was not installed, even though it contains important information on how to set up an LDAP sudoers source and other documents refer to it. This error no longer occurs, and the manual page is now properly included in the package. Additionally, various POD files have been removed from the package, as they are required for build purposes only.
