The existing BackupPC documentation is written as a manual. Presenting
the manual in html with links in the table of contents and links to conf
settings seems more convenient than man pages.
BackupPC doesn't have unix-like man pages. If you want to write some
I would consider including them, but I don't like the idea of keeping
duplicate information (in the manual and man pages) in sync and up to
date. It would require a common source that auto-generates the manual
and man pages.
