Details

Description: There is no man section 9 in archlinux. Kernel manpages are part of kernel sources, so once the sources ar unzipped, there can be packed into another package called eg. kernel26-manpages. Here is sample PKGBUILD:
http://aur.archlinux.org/packages/kernel-man-pages/kernel-man-pages/PKGBUILD

ok it's already in AUR, but i think that it will be better and simplier maintained/updated if it will be build from kernel26 PKGBUILD... implementation is quite simple...
This task depends upon

Oh yes. kernel-doc will be usefull too.
Arch is well documented, but i miss kernel documentation. i'd like to see up-to-date man+doc packages alongside with kernel releases.
