There should be a man page for the command line tool "urlgrabber"
which is part of python-urlgrabber package.

Comment 1 RHEL Product and Program Management 2011-01-07 15:54:52 UTC
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to
address this request at this time. Red Hat invites you to
ask your support representative to propose this request, if
appropriate and relevant, in the next release of Red Hat
Enterprise Linux. If you would like it considered as an
exception in the current release, please ask your support

Comment 2 Phil Knirsch 2011-06-09 14:02:25 UTC
Currently there is only a pydoc for urlgrabber available via:

pydoc urlgrabber

which is very similar to what we do for other languages like perl and additional modules for them.

That should be sufficient as a documentation and a standard for python modules.

Thanks & regards, Phil

I understand, as far as python module is concerned. But does
that apply for the /usr/bin/urlgrabber binary as well? I guess
command line utilities should have their man pages available.

Comment 5 Phil Knirsch 2011-06-17 11:30:04 UTC
Hm, true Petr. The urlgrabber upstream repo doesn't have a manpage, but there exists one for Debian and Ubuntu which is distributed under GPL V2+, so we should be able to use that.

But as it's not critical and we're past the planing phase for 6.2 i'm moving this to 6.3 Fast.

Thanks & regards, Phil

PS: Attached said manpage for inclusion.
