Bug#629868: these man files are missing in libstdc++6-4.6-doc and libstdc++6-4.7-doc also
 
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

This bug also affects subsequent versions of this package,
libstdc++6-4.6-doc and libstdc++6-4.7-doc


Today I typed "man std::mutex" and my system told me there was no man
page for something that I know is part of the c++ standard library. So
I went Whiskey Tango Foxtrot? and came to find out what's going on.

I came to Debian and searched for the package containing the file, and
found it ONLY in libstdc++6-4.4-doc.

A brief search led to this bug filed against libstdc++6-5.5-doc, and
confirmed that many of the man pages for the c++ standard library have
been missing ever since libstdc++6-4.4-doc.

This is the standard library. It's totally fundamental. We can't
allow Debian systems for programmers to NOT have man pages on this.

If you mean zip up the files that were in libstdc++6-4.4-doc that
aren't in later versions, uh, I guess I could. But that doesn't make
sense. They are in the source tree already, and I haven't modified
them. They've just been skipped (not included) in the current packages.

Is there any insight as to why? Somebody made a decision to not
package these files when they changed from libstdc++6-4.4.doc to
libstdc++6-4.5.doc (and later versions) and if I submitted a patch it
would be to undo that change. So if I'm patching it I want to first
understand the change.

If it was a policy decision, then undoing it will make people
who made that decision mad. If it's just a packaging error,
then the patch would probably be fairly trivial and wouldn't
require any man pages from me.

If it's a policy decision, then *different* man page files
are needed. It looks like we're talking about the removal
of a bunch of doxygen-generated pages, which are only
marginally helpful in the first place.

Finally, how can I create the patch? I know how to use diff,
and I can write troff or nroff man pages for anything I have
enough information about, but I know nearly nothing about the
.deb file format or how packages are built from the debian
source trees.
