./converters/help2man, Generate simple manual pages from program output

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.47.16nb1, Package name: help2man-1.47.16nb1, Maintainer: arved

help2man is a tool for automatically generating simple manual pages from
program output.

It is intended to provide an easy way for software authors to include a
manual page in their distribution without having to maintain that document.

Given a program which produces resonably standard --help and --version
outputs, help2man will attempt to re-arrange that output into something
which resembles a manual page.

converters/help2man: remove redundant condition around SUBST block

Since subst.mk r1.85 from 2020-04-29 20:00, a few hours after this
condition had been added, this is not necessary anymore.

help2man: updated to 1.47.15

help2man (1.47.15) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Use the package name and version as the default for --source (was
    program).
  * Support packages in version strings without the GNU or Free prefix.
  * Allow an optional second dash to separate the package name from the
    version for multi-word packages: "program - package name - version".

help2man (1.47.14) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Revert --version parsing change from 1.47.13, which had unintended
    consequences for some version strings.  In short, it is not possible
    to unambiguously determine the split between the package/program name
    and version in some of the supported formats.  Multi-word package
    names are supported only in the "program (GNU package) version"
    variant

  * Remove install_dirs target entirely, add explicit $(MKINSTALLDIRS)
    before each $(INSTALL_{DATA,PROGRAM}) call.
  * Update parsing of --version to allow multi-word programs when
    constructing the placeholder NAME paragraph

Log message:
all: migrate several HOMEPAGEs to https

pkglint --only "https instead of http" -r -F

With manual adjustments afterwards since pkglint 19.4.4 fixed a few
indentations in unrelated lines.

This mainly affects projects hosted at SourceForce, as well as
freedesktop.org, CTAN and GNU.
