MISSING(7)                 Linux Programmer's Manual                MISSING(7)

       missing - missing manual pages

       This  manual page intends to document which manual pages are missing in
       various sections.  Bug reports against the package manpages-dev or man-
       pages  were opened for all of them through the Debian Bug Tracking Sys-
       tem (BTS).  Some of these bug reports were reported upstream while some
       weren't.   Upstream,  however, is not able to create arbitrary manpages
       without additional information and additional spare time.  Hence,  it's
       completely useless to simply report them upstream.

       Manpages represent an important means of documentation which can easily
       be read and converted into various formats.  They are very helpful  for
       checking  how  things  work, rather than for a tutorial.  If you notice
       that more pages are missing, please try to find additional  information
       and report it as wishlist bug against this package.

       If you are confident with the issue, please write up a preliminary man-
       page and attach it to the bug report.  It doesn't matter if  your  Eng-
       lish  is  bad  or if you mixed up markup, as long as the content can be
       used as source for a new manpage.  A detailed documentation on  how  to
       write manpages is available in man(7).

       When  writing  manual pages please ensure that they are conforming with
       The Single UNIX Specification (see below).  Linux ought to be  conform-
       ing to this specification.  Differences need to be documented, in addi-
       tional sections, though.

       The following is a list of missing pages sorted by section and bug num-
       ber.   If you can contribute content or even a manual page, please send
       a mail to nnnnn@bugs.debian.org where nnnnn refers to  the  bug  number
       from below.
