* A thought: maybe replace 'man' with 'info'. Info documentation is
better maintained than man pages, and if you type 'info' and there's no
info page, it'll fall back to using the man page - so users get the best
I actually wrote a short article covering the differences between
the two a while ago:
You have full permission to take anything useful from there, verbatim
or otherwise. I'd also recommend 'pinfo' over the standalone 'info'
reader. I actually think 'man' would have disappeared by now if 'info'
at all intuitive to use (and all programs had good --help output
for quick checking). If you encourage people to use 'info' they'll either
give up or eventually find 'pinfo'.
* I'd mention /usr/share/doc/<packagename>-<version>/
as part of
your 'Developer Documentation' section.
Big plus for this one, too.
Also, why not link to ESR's "Smart Questions" itself with ulink?
There are some minor grammatical issues (like captitalizing "I")
that I assume you're already planning on fixing. :)
