zif.sgml - the source for a manpage
Description of problem:
rpmlint complained about the manpage generated by docbook2man in this package review: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=631763#c6
The warning was:
manual-page-warning /usr/share/man/man1/zif.1.gz 1: warning: `\"' not defined
The warning can be reproduced using a command like this:
gtbl < zif.1 | groff -mtty-char -Tutf8 -P-c -mandoc -mandoc -wmac >/dev/null
(where zif.1 was generated by docbook2man from the attached source)
groff does not like the first line in the file:
.\\" auto-generated by docbook2man-spec $Revision: 1.2 $
I believe the correct form would be:
.\" auto-generated by docbook2man-spec $Revision: 1.2 $
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. generate a manpage from the attached source using docbook2man
2. verify it using the command mentioned above (that's basically what rpmlint uses)
a warning is produced
