[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#867956: Manpage refers to non-existent Texinfo manual

Package: exo-utils
Version: 0.10.7-1
Severity: minor

The automatically generated manpage exo-desktop-item-edit (at
debian/exo-desktop-item-edit.1) refers to a Texinfo manual that does
not appear to exist, either in Debian or upstream.

This is slightly confusing, especially due to the licensing conflict
between Debian and GNU, which makes the reader wonder whether there
actually is an info manual in a "non-free" doc package, somewhere.


No patches attached since the manpage is automatically generated using help2man.

However, using the --no-info option in help2man should solve the issue.

PS Thank you for maintaining additional manpages in Debian, in the first place!
