Lintian Reports

W manpage-has-bad-whatis-entry

A subset of the reports of manpage-has-bad-whatis-entry for the archive. Unfortunately the full list is too long, so only 633 instances are listed on this page. At most 3 tags are shown per package. If you need the full list of tags, please download the lintian.log.gz file and extract the data you need.

The extended description of this tag is:

Each manual page should start with a "NAME" section, which lists the name and a brief description of the page separated by "\-". The "NAME" section is parsed by lexgrog and used to generate a database that's queried by commands like apropos and whatis. This tag indicates that lexgrog was unable to parse the NAME section of this manual page.

For manual pages that document multiple programs, functions, files, or other things, the part before "\-" should list each separated by a comma and a space. Each thing listed must not contain spaces; a man page for a two-part command like "fs listacl" must use something like "fs_listacl" in the "NAME" section so that it can be parsed by lexgrog.

Refer to the lexgrog(1) manual page, the groff_man(7) manual page, and the groff_mdoc(7) manual page for details.

Severity: normal, Certainty: certain

Check: manpages, Type: binary
