Summary0000420: Please add manpages for kdenlive and kdenlive_render

on Linux systems every binary in {/usr}/{sbin,bin}/ should include a manpage which describes the program itself and the usage, parameters etc.

Could you please provide them? They are the only missing things to get it into the Debian archive immo. :)

I think this is actually only a requirement for debian.

At this state, I think we would gladly accept a patch with man pages.

Also, kdenlive_render is very much an "internal program" - the kdenlive binary calls it to render, but it really should not be called by endusers - could you perhaps provide a link to the debian policy for this, so we can figure out if the debian policy does require a man page for this?

[20:51] <the-me> nah... madsdyd it is described in 12.1: [^]
[20:51] <the-me> it is a requirement and may also be rejected due of missing manpages, if not then this are bugs.
[20:51] <madsdyd> also for kdenlive_render?
[20:52] <the-me> kdenlive_render should go to usr/lib/kdenlive/ if it just _should_ be used internaly and not by the user
[20:52] <the-me> and if it is in u/l/kdenlive/ then it does not need a manual page :-)

There is a handy script here: [^]

Attaching slightly modified script output shortly.

Have acknowledged for 0.7.1. The following should be done:

- move kdenlive_render installation to $PREFIX/lib/kdenlive and update kdenlive bin to address it like that
- install attached file into $PREFIX/share/man/man1/kdenlive.1

I think it's great that we have these, however after talking with Christian Marillat (spelling?) it seems that the real problem with getting into Debian is the stuff around codec licenses for mpeg2/3/4/h.263 etc. Sounds like this is less of an issue for Ubuntu though.

re comment 1474: There are no actual code in kdenlive/mlt/mlt++ (AFAIK) that does anything with codecs. The problems with codecs needs to be handled on the level of ffmpeg. I think Debian already handles this somehow.

I think it should probably go to

However, I am not really sure it should go there at all. It does not seem there are other binaries in there.

So just another password reset.. The mantis version is buggy.

As stated kdenlive has no licensing issues {anymore}, but ffmpeg has a bunch of..
The codecs are limited or removed in Debian, so on kdenlive is just affected of this, but yeah..

To the last comment:
$ find /usr/lib/ -type f -perm -500|wc -l

The manpage looks fine but I just attached a little "fix" which removes some spaces at EOL etc.

On my desktop are 572 executable binarys/scripts, this is the right place at all.

I think to push it to $PREFIX/lib/kde4/kdenlive instead of $PREFIX/lib/kdenlive would be a minor violation while this is the namespace for the offical KDE4 binarys/libs.

the-me: Just uploaded draft for kdenlive_render (consensus amongst developers seems to be that it is OK to keep it user accesible) - please have a look, if you find it is OK, I will find out how to add it to svn.

Added in Kdenlive SVN rev. 2757.
