Description

Hello

I'm working on updating parrot package for Debian. (parrot 3.0.0)

Debian policy requires that any exe file has its own man page. So man pages must be generated from pod doc during package build.

I guess that other distro packagers will have to perform a similar task.

How about providing these man pages upstream to avoid duplicated work downstream ?

All the best
