Comment 1 Tom Tromey 2006-02-04 02:31:52 UTC
FWIW it looks like this was fixed in upstream cvs,
by moving the remsync documentation into sharutils.texi.

Comment 2 Tom Tromey 2006-04-04 00:49:07 UTC
In FC5 there is no top-level menu entry for 'remsync', even
though the program is still installed and is documented
in  I think it would be better for an
entry to be added to the master 'dir' file.

Comment 3 Matthew Miller 2006-07-10 22:21:11 UTC
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

Comment 4 Tom Tromey 2006-09-27 18:10:38 UTC
This still happens in FC6t2.
remsync is installed, the sharutils manual has an "Invoking remsync"
node, but there is no entry in the top-level dir file pointing at
the remsync manual.

Comment 5 Marcin Garski 2006-11-03 14:07:37 UTC
Maybe this is fixed in sharutils-4.6.3 release?

Comment 6 Matthew Miller 2007-04-06 18:03:53 UTC
Fedora Core 5 and Fedora Core 6 are, as we're sure you've noticed, no longer
test releases. We're cleaning up the bug database and making sure important bug
reports filed against these test releases don't get lost. It would be helpful if
you could test this issue with a released version of Fedora or with the latest
development / test release. Thanks for your help and for your patience.

[This is a bulk message for all open FC5/FC6 test release bugs. I'm adding
myself to the CC list for each bug, so I'll see any comments you make after this
and do my best to make sure every issue gets proper attention.]

Comment 7 Ngo Than 2007-04-13 16:44:53 UTC
the remsync info file has been merged in in the new upstream 
version, so you should now use info sharutils

Comment 8 Tom Tromey 2007-04-13 23:01:46 UTC
At least on FC6 there is still no 'dir' entry for remsync.
There should be one, given that there is an 'invoking remsync' node
in the manual.  All the other sharutils utilites (except 
"compress-dummy", which does not appear to be documented) have direct
entries in 'dir'.

I did not look to see if F7 still has this bug.
