RFE: rpmlint should check if every binary or script has man page
Last modified: 2010-09-27 12:47:14 EDT
Description of problem:
A lot of packages provides executable without man page. Rpmlint should check for every file which is going to be installed in /usr/bin/ /usr/sbin/ /bin and /sbin that equivalent file exist in mandir. Warning should be sufficient.
It already does, and in addition to those dirs, executables in /usr/games are checked as well. For example:
$ rpm -q rpmlint
$ rpmlint rpmlint | grep no-manual-page
rpmlint.noarch: W: no-manual-page-for-binary rpmdiff
If you have a reproducer where that fails, please provide the details and feel free to reopen this bug.
Ah sorry, I was using rpmlint-0.94. I thought is was recent enough. Mea culpa.
