Description:

The OpenSSL package does not include section 3, 5, or 7 manpages. Is there a good reason? I find it rather inconvenient, and it seems to run counter to The Arch Way, specifically: not providing documentation where an experienced user would expect to find it and inexplicably altering an upstream release.

$ pacman -Qs openssl
local/openssl 0.9.8e-3

Steps to reproduce:

$ pacman -Ql openssl | grep man3
$ echo $?

I'd provide a patch, but there is some voodoo going on with manpages in the openssl PKGBUILD, I'm not sure it's as easy as removing the "rm -rf man3 man5 man7" line and I don't have time to dig in right now.
