[Pkg-haskell-maintainers] Bug#734206: aeson-pretty: missing man page, incorrect info from --help

Package: aeson-pretty
Version: 0.7-1
Severity: normal

Thanks for packaging!

My apologies if this should have been two bug reports. I ran into
two problems while learning how to use aeson-pretty:

1.	There is no man page for aeson-pretty

2.	The built-in help (``aeson-pretty --help``) is incorrect about
	the default sorting of object keys. It says:

		-s --sort        Sort objects by key (default false).
	But it _does_ sort object keys by default. For example:

		$ echo '{"b":1,"a":1}' | aeson-pretty 
			"a": 1,
			"b": 1
	I'm not sure if this should be fixed in the documentation, or
	the behavior of aeson-pretty.

Thank you.
