And my point, which I will make one last time, is that this model hasn't
worked. Yes, it works sometimes, but we still have a bunch of stuff that
doesn't have _any_ man page at all. If we want to continue the
transition to being a more professional OS that isn't acceptable.
I've already made the points about why working through the documentation
_before_ committing is valuable, and that the simple step of requiring
this is an easy way to make sure the problem we have doesn't get any
worse. Clearly there isn't a lot of sympathy for either of these
perspectives in the wider community, so c'est la vie.
But I was serious about my other comment, if you(pl.) are not willing to
make a change to improve the situation, you lose the right to complain
down the road when the man pages don't magically appear.
