[DebianGIS-dev] Bug#452281: There are no manpages in the package

Package: mapserver-bin
Version: 5.0.0-2
Severity: normal


mapserver-bin contains various tools, but no manpages:

$ dpkg -L mapserver-bin

It's a bit hard to figure what the tools do.  Most of them don't even
have useful commandline help:

$ shptree --help
Error opening shapefile --help.
