[Debconf-devel] Bug#694626: debconf-doc: properly document how to use multiple capabilities

Package: debconf-doc
Version: 1.5.46
Severity: normal


The debconf documentation does not specify how to correctly use multiple
capabilities in the protocol. I figured out by trial and error that when
using the perl ConfModule, they should be separated by spaces:
my $capb=capb('backup escape');

I haven't tried that with the "sh" confmodule.

Here's a request to get that documented.
