    http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=108142
    Date: Thu, 09 Aug 2001 06:28:32 -0400
    From: Thomas Hood <jdthood@yahoo.co.uk>
    Package: gconf
    Version: 1.0.3-2
    Severity: normal

    Man pages are missing for gconfd-1 and gconftool-1.

    Also, there is no documentation directory /usr/share/doc 
    in this package.

Peace.
