Re: [PLUG] Is there a trick to install just the manpages out of a package?

Most packages will use dodoc to install the documentation, and this will not install the files if the doc use flag is not set.  If you find this not to be the case file a bug!  :)

Doh, looks like this behavior isn't actually automatic - whoever built the package needs to check the doc use flag.  In any case, they should still do so, and you can file a bug if they didn't unless there is a good reason for this behavior...
