I haven't read the thread's begining but I could help out too. It might be
also worth it to make sure the man pages gets installed in /usr/share/man.
That way we'll do the FSH man pages todo at the same time as the license
todo. There's also a bug report about an important number of PKGBUILD
with missing md5sums. We should make sure these gets added too (when
building packages for other devs, sometime the md5sums are missing).
This message has been scanned for viruses and
dangerous content by MailScanner, and is
believed to be clean.
