I have recently switched to FreeBSD. Although IMHO FreeBSD is very well
documented, with lots of excellent manual pages, I really missed manual
pages for devfs.conf and devfs.rules.
So I created them, based on my reading of other manual pages and the
startup scripts. You can find them at the following URI:
I would like to ask for feedback on these manual pages. In particular I
would like to know what needs to be done to make them suitable for
submission, and whom I should submit them to when finished, since manual
pages are not deemed to be part of the documentation set.
Although I've tried to adhere to groff_mdoc(7) and have used other
manual pages as examples, the lists in the examples in devfs.conf.5 and
devfs.rules.5 come out mangled when rendering in HTML. Text and
PostScript look fine. Am I doing something wrong, or is this a bug?
