Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.5.6, Package name: txt2man-1.5.6, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

txt2man converts the input text into nroff commands using

available either for commands using "-" sign for flags
(including long options used in GNU tools). If ifile is
omitted, standard input is taken as argument. Result is
displayed on standard output.

converters: Remove SHA1 hashes for distfiles

Log message:
Add SHA512 digests for distfiles for converters category

Problems found with existing distfile:
No changes made to the libiconv distinfo file.

Otherwise, existing SHA1 digests verified and found to be the same on
the machine holding the existing distfiles (morden).  All existing
SHA1 digests retained for now as an audit trail.
