Hi, (CC'd to docs-list) My summer project is at a stage where I need to think about finding all of the man pages in a Fedora release. I have basic CVS integration working so that the user can specify a package and a branch and it imports the man pages from that package to the wiki (by downloading the source tarball). You can read more about the status of my project from my newest weekly report. But what do you think is the best way of finding all of the man pages in a release? - Do a "cvs -co", parse it, download every source package and search for man files? - Or download filelists.xml from a repository mirror, parse it to find every package that contains man pages, then download the RPMs and extract the man pages from them? - Any other ideas? And in any case, how to handle package updates? I'm starting to be in favour of the RPM repository choice. It was pointed to me in the comments of my blog that sometimes the man files are edited in the .spec file and so taking the files from the binary RPMS might be a good thing. Handling package updates would also be somewhat simple if I used RPM repositories, yum does that all the time ;) Thanks in advance for your comments!  http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/SummerOfCode/2007/VillePekkaVainio  http://vpv.kapsi.fi/blog/2007/07/01/weekly-report-week-26-so-many-questions/  http://vpv.kapsi.fi/blog/2007/07/01/weekly-report-week-26-so-many-questions/#comment-11 -- Ville-Pekka Vainio vpivaini cs helsinki fi
