Robin Sommer commented on BIT-856:

Two comments/questions:

- Daniel, the subprojects install into BRO_MAN_INSTALL_PATH, however that's only set by the top-level (bro) Makefile. It would be nicer if the subprojects didn't depend on that (e.g., trace-summary can be installed standalone as well). I think the better solution would be to adapt each's installation to work on its own.

- Raúl, would you be ok if we removed the notes that you have written the pages for the Debian project? We usually don't call out individual contributors within the code base, as that's hard to maintain over time as things change. We would instead put your name  (and Debian, if you want) into CHANGES.

>                 URL: https://bro-tracker.atlassian.net/browse/BIT-856
>             Project: Bro Issue Tracker
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: Bro, bro-aux, BroControl, trace-summary
>    Affects Versions: git/master
>            Reporter: Vern Paxson
>            Assignee: Robin Sommer
>             Fix For: 2.4
>         Attachments: bro.8, broctl.8, bro-cut.1, trace-summary.1
> Utilities like bro-cut only supply \--help documentation, as far as I can tell.  Man pages would be handy.  (In particular, I was looking for some sort of statement of exactly to what degree bro-cut can munch on the concatenation of multiple log files that have different column layouts.)
