Description Jakub Hrozek 2012-08-06 04:14:18 EDT
Created attachment 602457 [details]
a spec file patch.

Description of problem:
libtevent in rawhide seems to be owning the top-level directory for man page section 3:


It also doesn't build man pages, because it lacks the proper BuildRequries. 

Including the man pages might be questionable because the same information is mostly included in the header file and completely included in the upstream HTML documentation.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
specfile inspection, rpmlint

Additional info:
a patch is attached. Andreas already fixed the issue with exclude patterns in tevent upstream.

a spec file patch.

The patch looks good. Despite the upstream documentation being good, I'd still prefer to have the manpages included in the package simply because this way they are viewable while disconnected. The comments in the header file are good, but somewhat less easily-readable.

Fixed in libtevent-0.9.16-3
