connmand man page lists wrong author

Bug Description

Binary package hint: connman

The man page for connmand lists Mathieu Trudel as author. It's my understanding that the AUTHOR section in man pages lists the software author and not the man page author? In that case the author should probably be corrected to Marcel Holtmann and Jukka Rissanen which are the ones listed as maintainers on

ConnMan AUTHORS:;a=blob;f=AUTHORS;h=ccae4bd7f1975e017e2377152bf12f599961d630;hb=HEAD

Sure, I'm happy to update the manpage to clarify this.

Did the following change in the branch for connman 0.69:

ConnMan was written by Marcel Holtmann <email address hidden>,
Samuel Ortiz <email address hidden>, and many others.

This manual page was written by Mathieu Trudel <mathieu\-<email address hidden>>,
for the Debian and Ubuntu projects (but may be used by others).
