you can see the results of my attempt at fixing #2379
I'd appreciate review of that page to check that it is accurate. The changes
1) Removal of the convert-mans script. Man-DB should just do the right thing
2) Removal of the discussion of what other distributions support as I judged
it to be largely irrelevant and confusing given the much simplified
setup we can now adopt
3) Updated the encoding table to match what Man-DB-2.5.5 languages now supports
and removed the now outdated list of languages it doesn't support.
4) Added a 'make check' command, as Man-DB now comes with a test suite. This
currently fails 8 out of 9 of the test though, with the following message:
FAIL: col: Invalid or incomplete multibyte or wide character
So this may get dropped before the commit is made.
The book patch I intend to commit is attached.
