Linux 2.6 - man page for missing (linux section 7)

MISSING(7)			    Linux Programmer's Manual			       MISSING(7)

       missing - missing manual pages

       This  manual  page intends to document which manual pages are missing in various sections.
       Bug reports against the package manpages-dev or manpages  were  opened  for  all  of  them
       through	the  Debian  Bug  Tracking System (BTS).  Some of these bug reports were reported
       upstream while some weren't.  Upstream, however, is not able to create arbitrary  manpages
       without	additional information and additional spare time.  Hence, it's completely useless
       to simply report them upstream.

       Manpages represent an important means of documentation which can easily be read	and  con-
       verted  into  various formats.  They are very helpful for checking how things work, rather
       than for a tutorial.  If you notice that more pages are missing, please try to find  addi-
       tional information and report it as wishlist bug against this package.

       If  you	are confident with the issue, please write up a preliminary manpage and attach it
       to the bug report.  It doesn't matter if your English is bad or if you mixed up markup, as
       long  as the content can be used as source for a new manpage.  A detailed documentation on
       how to write manpages is available in man(7).

       When writing manual pages please ensure that they are  conforming  with	The  Single  UNIX
       Specification  (see  below).  Linux ought to be conforming to this specification.  Differ-
       ences need to be documented, in additional sections, though.

       The following is a list of missing pages sorted by section and bug  number.   If  you  can
       contribute  content  or	even  a  manual page, please send a mail to nnnnn@bugs.debian.org
       where nnnnn refers to the bug number from below.

	      nice, indeed.
