Description Matthew Miller 2010-09-05 22:55:24 EDT
"Database cached manual pager suite" is not very illuminating, even if one knows what one is looking for. It's a database? Cached manual? Oh, no, wait, maybe it's a manual pager, where I have to look through the pages by hand.

How about "Tools for searching and reading man pages"?

The end user doesn't generally care that this is the database-cached version, particularly since we don't include both so it's not like there's a choice.

I'd say "manual pages", but no one actually ever calls them that. Maybe include the terms "manual pages" and "documentation" in the longer description, to help in searching or if someone really is confused. The part about db caching can go there too.
