NAME

       missing - missing manual pages

DESCRIPTION

       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
       converted  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
       additional 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.
       Differences need to be documented, in additional sections, though.

MISSING PAGES

       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.

   Section 9 - Kernel routines
       Bug#102724
              Mandrake seems to deliver section 9 manual pages, though their  source  is  obscure
              and  they  do seem to be out-dated.  Nevertheless, some section 9 manpages would be
              nice, indeed.

              ksoftirqd(9) - software handling of incoming IRQs
              kswapd(9) - kernel swap daemon thread
              kupdated(9) - flush the journal
