Details

The core/make package does not contain info documentation for make, although the PKGBUILD should have included it. It certainly does, when I run makepkg. Apparently, the package was built on a machine where makeinfo was unavailable? Anyway, GNU make is a rather complex utility and it's hard to get along without documentation, even for somewhat experienced users. It would be really nice if the info documentation could be added to the package.
This task depends upon

This is an updated PKGBUILD that will register/unregister the info documentation in the system-wide "dir" file.
While I was at it, I also fixed two namcap warnings by moving the documentation into /usr/share/{info,man}.

I attached my patch for PKGBUILD

To be clear: make probably hasn't been rebuilt in a while, and fully adding documentation is a newer change

what?

It's on my list. But has low priority. Use ABS and do it Archy (yourself) if you can't wait ;)

do it "Archy" hehe :-). my comment was directed towards Aaron though which i couldn't make out what he said.

I meant: adding info docs to packages is rather recent... not sure when the last time Andy rebuilt make was
Comment by Aaron Griffin (phrakture) - Monday, 09 March 2009, 19:30 GMT
Ah, looks like it's just a --infodir / --mandir change, I'd guess
