The biggest obstacle currently in the way of packaging Nosefart seems to be the lack of man pages. We'd need two man pages. One for nosefart, and another for gnosefart. Matthew Strait, being the current upstream maintainer of Nosefart, has indicated that he might be willing to do a new Nosefart release including the man pages, once they have been created.

Creating the man pages should be quite trivial work, as the available options are explained in the command line interface. One could start by copy/pasting them over. Then all one needs to do is look at the man pages of a few well known pieces of software, to find out the best way to create a man page for Nosefart. All we need is some one to do the shoveling.

I've unassigned myself. I plan to look at it again once, someone creates man pages for the software.

I've attached the man page for you guys :P
