Subject: live-build: manpage has bad FILES section
Date: Wed, 11 May 2011 12:18:01 +0100
Package: live-build
Version: 2.0.12-2
Severity: normal

The live-build(7) manual page has a FILES section like this:


This is a bit pointless: either list relevant files, or remove the section.

The file I was actually looking for should be listed in the lb_build(1)
manpage: /etc/live/build.conf. The manpage now only lists auto/build.
