Bug#625826: nfs-common: missing manpage idmapd.conf
 
Package: nfs-common
Version: 1:1.2.3-2
Severity: wishlist

Hi,

the rpc.idmapd(8) manpage refers to the manpage idmapd.conf (SEE ALSO).
However, there is no such manpage (any more). According to upstream Git
commit 207cf7, the manpage was moved to libnfsidmap.

It would be nice to have this manpage available again. Imho, the most
appropriate place would be the nfs-common package but since that depends
on libnfsidmap2, shipping it in the latter would be fine (and more
straight-forward) as well. So, please feel free to reassign as you seem
fit :-)

TIA,
Sebastian

There are already 2 bugs open about this, merging it with the others...
They even 'affect' nfs-common, so it's strange that it does not show up
when filing bugs?

The idmapd.conf file is provided by libnfsidmap2, so it's only logical
that the manpage is also provided by that same package AFAICT.

Cheers

Luk
