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
