Bug Description

Binary package hint: xmacro

After installing the package xmacro (command line based keyboard and mouse recorder), a documentation file is installed in /usr/share/doc/xmacro/README

Running "man xmacro" however, complains there is no manual post on xmacro. The same for man xmarcorec, man xmacrorec2 and man xmacroplay.

All of these commands should instead show a manpage containing the information in /usr/share/doc/xmacro/README

NOTE: There is a Debian bug reported at http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=330199 but I find it unusable, since the bugreport is not actually a report for a missing man page, but a request of support. The bugreport author has clearly misunderstood the purpose of the application as well.

I will not comment on the Debian bugreport since m e-mail then would be left open, published on the net for spam harvesters to go.
