aspell.1 is particularly "large" but managed to add
some updates to it.

these updates should hopefully cure:
1206940 Aspell Manual should mention Bug Reporting

and includes some of the fixes mentioned here (except
for debian specific inclusions):

    The desription of the "--time" in inaccurate. Please stick
    with what is in the texinfo manual.

    Also, rather than "Default config is guess false." just use
    "The default value is false." or better, "Disabled by default."

    Also since you added some details to some of the config
    options could you please also update the texinfo manual?

    Also the "jargon" option is now depicted. "variety" should
    be used instead.

    I must have seen it in another project unrelated to aspell
    then, because I definitely recall seeing a hardcodded
    return(0). I'm scratching my head wondering where did I
    see it, but not worth pursuing now (took a brief look into
    aspell.cpp searching "time", so this isn't it).

    >Also, rather than "Default config is guess false."

    >"Disabled by default."

    Okay, I had been thinking that adding the needed
    information with each option could replace the
    CONFIGURATION section, for example "boolean" sort of seems
    questionable for someone trying to decipher what each
    option means compared to "guess true" or "guess false", but
    adding info to each option appears to make aspell.1 grow
    far too large.

    Fixed Section CONFIGURATION a little but leaving it to the
    manual to have best details describing the configuration
    files.

    >Also since you added some details to some of the config

    Good idea, but just too busy with other priorities right
    now, so that has to wait a bit. :-(
    At least the info file has progressed a bit vs not at
    all. :-)

    Is there any chance of satisfaction in closing-up the
    patches for prezip-bin.1 and wordlist-compress.1? or are
    those also waiting for something else?

    Is this for Aspell 0.60 or 0.61?

    Based on last 0.60.4

    I suspect many changes/additions for 0.61 so left it alone.

    more consistent, better but not complete yet.

    Applied this patch after making several changes.

    Many of your explanations where unnecessary verbose. In the future
    please stick to what is in the manual, and if you fell what is in the
    manual is inadequate please submit a separate patch. I kept a few of
    them. When I did I also modified aspell.texi.

    Also, the defaults for many options are not fixed, as some of them are
    language depending. So it is best to avoid mentioning them.

    I renamed "BUG REPORTING" to "SUPPORT" and copied the text from the
    Aspell.texi there.

    I also made some other fixed to the manual.
