man2html needs partitioning

man2html (Ubuntu)
Fix Released

Bug Description

Currently the man2html package depends on the Apache stack. The package comprises a CGI component, which clearly requires the Apache stack, and a man page to HTML page compiler which I believe is not dependent on the Apache stack. Having the man page to HTML page compiler available separately without the need to install the Apache stack would be a serious improvement in the package structure. Currently it is not possible to install the man2html command via packages on a machine which is not allowed to have the Apache stack installed.

This bug was fixed in the package man2html - 1.6g-5

man2html (1.6g-5) unstable; urgency=low

  * man2html.postinst: Convert the /u/s/d/man2html directory into a symlink
    pointing to man2html-base (closes: #616594).
  * man2html.doc-base: Register html files from man2html-base, not man2html.
  * man2html.cgi.c: Check result of pipe() call.

man2html (1.6g-4) unstable; urgency=low

  * Depends/Suggests lynx-cur instead of lynx transitional package
    (closes: #613129).
  * Add a debian/NEWS file for the recent package split. Include a dummy
    entry there to work-around apt-listchanges bug #590541.

man2html (1.6g-3) unstable; urgency=low

  * Upload to unstable.
  * debian/rules:
    + use dpkg-buildflags for setting CFLAGS;
    + add build-arch and build-indep targets.

man2html (1.6g-2) experimental; urgency=low

  * Split the binary package into two (closes: #285403, LP: #584825):
    + man2html-base with a command-line man to HTML converter only;
    + man2html containing the CGI interface.
  * Remove any dependencies on web-server stuff from the man2html-base
    package, and make man2html package to depend on httpd instead of
    recommending it (closes: #504486).

man2html (1.6g-1) experimental; urgency=low

  * New upstream release.
  * Get the searched/indexed man directories from system manpath file
    (LP: #246816):
    + cron.weekly: use `manpath -g' to find out the system man directories;
    + man2html.cgi.c: take MANDB_MAP entries into account while parsing
    + postinst: call the weekly job to perform initial indexing of man pages;
    + avoid duplicated/symlinked directories in both the weekly script and
      the cgi program.
  * manwhatis.c: add the `-g' option to manpath call.
  * 010-aux-debian.patch (updated): correct paths in example.
  * 033-gcc-warnings.patch (new): fix some gcc warnings.
  * Reformat Debian-specific sources with the `astyle -A1 -SKs4' command.
  * Standards-Version: 3.9.1 (no changes).
  * Bump debhelper compat mode to 8.
