Package: live-initramfs
Version: 1.139.1-4
Severity: wishlist


The documentation regarding the persistency feature should be
improved.

The live-snapshot manpage is lacking some usage examples.
I'd like to see stuff from
http://live.debian.net/manual/html/persistence.html integrated
within the offline docs as well.

(I'm not yet familiar with the details of the persistency feature
within live-initramfs, so at least for now someone who already knows
all the details should provide the docs, I'll provide further docs
as soon as I digged into all the details then.)

thx && regards,
-mika-

Hi,

rather than including all the stuff from the manual into the manpage,
which would be uselessly doubling the information and putting load on us
to keep it current, and because the manpages are supposed to be by their
nature more a reference sort of documentation, the manual was uploaded
to debian as an ordinary package, which means that we'll be shipping the
manual pre-installed on the live systems and users can offline look for
the information they need.

live-manual unfortunately is, for no good reason, stuck in NEW for over
two month now. But it will eventually make it...

Regards,
Daniel
