[Pkg-libburnia-devel] Bug#731023: xorriso: Missing info file

Package: xorriso
Version: 1.3.2-1
Severity: normal

The absurdly huge manpage is shown for xorriso(1) even under info.  
As expected in GNU program, both manpage ans info page are generated
from *.texi in the source  and present in the source.

Please package *.info page by adding *.info files as indicated by:

This should make situation better.

By the way, this manulal is very difficunlt to understand.

I see 2 major issues:
 * No indication of default behavior for eash option.
   - Did I miss something hidden some where? Is the first one default?
     -  -md5 "on"
     -  -xattr "on"
     -  -eject "in"
     -  -commit_eject "in" (can not be both this and -eject "in")
     ... these are ones I am not sure.

 * Too many acronyms without easily findable definitions.  
   (They seems to be internal variable names)
   - nwa: next write address ?
   - msc: multi session subsector count?
     (But what is sbsector? seen with -toc)
   - ino: inode number?
   - lba: ?
