Hi guys,

after building bristol, lintian warned about the following:

W: bristol: binary-without-manpage usr/bin/bristolNRPgen
W: bristol: binary-without-manpage usr/bin/bristoljackstats
W: bristol: binary-without-manpage usr/bin/bristolnotegen

N:
N: Each binary in /usr/bin, /usr/sbin, /bin, /sbin or /usr/games should
N: have a manual page
N:
N: Note that though the man program has the capability to check for several
N: program names in the NAMES section, each of these programs should have
N: its own manual page (a symbolic link to the appropriate manual page is
N: sufficient) because other manual page viewers such as xman or tkman
N: don't support this.
N:
N: If the name of the man page differs from the binary by case, man may be
N: able to find it anyway; however, it is still best practice to make the
N: case of the man page match the case of the binary.
N:
N: If the man pages are provided by another package on which this package
N: depends, lintian may not be able to determine that man pages are
N: available. In this case, after confirming that all binaries do have man
N: pages after this package and its dependencies are installed, please add
N: a lintian override.
N:
N: Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 12.1 (Manual pages) for details.
N:
N: Severity: normal, Certainty: possible

Would you provide all manpages above?

Thank you!

    So NRPgen and notegen were going to be removed from the distribution, they really were only ever intended for in house QA testing. Jackstats is something I probabaly do need to send out so I will put together a man mage (very short) and with a big SEE ALSO section.

    Kind regards, nick.
