  Description     : utility to browse doc-base registered documents

 This package contains an utility to browse documentation installed on
 a Debian system. The utility has a command-line interface and can be
 used to search, open and display information of doc-base registered
 documents. It also generates an HTML catalog of the available documents
 each time a package registers a new one.

 Note that the project URL is temporary. The final one (that will appear
 in the package) should be http://dochelp.debian.net.

Regards,

How does this differ from dwww and devhelp? 

Is it related to manpages.debian.net?

- Doesn't need any cron job (updating happens using dpkg triggers… so
only when strictly needed).
- Doesn't need a local webserver
- Doesn't need to run any CGI.
- Has a command-line tool to browse/open/search docs.
- I plan to add a GTK UI to browse doc-base documentation and info pages.

No.

Oh, and AFAIK, devhelp doesn't read doc-base files. So that's quite out
of subject. no? Still, devhelp looks interesting. Thanks for mentioning it.

Cheers.

Hi,

A long time ago, you expressed interest in packaging dochelp. Unfortunately,
it seems that it did not happen. In Debian, we try not to keep ITP bugs open
for a too long time, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to
refrain from packaging the software.

This is an automatic email to change the status of dochelp back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 10 months.

If you are still interested in packaging dochelp, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 686664 ITP: dochelp -- utility to browse doc-base registered documents
 owner 686664 !
 thanks

It is also a good idea to document your progress on this ITP from time to
time, by mailing <686664@bugs.debian.org>.  If you need guidance on how to
package this software, please reply to this email, and/or contact the
debian-mentors@lists.debian.org mailing list.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
--
