man page sections



What are the rules for creating new man page sections?

Recently we discovered a file conflict for the worms.6 man page[1] which
was half-resolved in rawhide by renaming the xscreensaver-extras man
pages from *.6 to *.6x.  Unfortunately, in order for 'man 6x worm' to
show the correct page, we need to create and move the pages to
/usr/share/man/man6x.

I filed a bug against man-pages requesting that it create and own this
directory, and have suggested that xscreensaver-extras create, but not
own, this directory for its man pages.
