Package: resolvconf
Version: 1.79
Severity: important

The man page of resolvconf is missing important information regarding

It appears the man page from other OS contains information about these

          File  containing  basic  resolver  information.  The lines in this
          file are included in the resolver configuration file even when no
          interfaces are configured.

          File to be prepended to the dynamically generated resolver
          configuration file.  Normally this is just a comment line.

          File to be appended to the dynamically generated resolver
          configuration file.  To append nothing, make this  an  empty
          file.   This file is a good place to put a resolver options line
          if one is needed, e.g.,

              options inet6

This is very useful information for configuration, can you please add it to the
man page?
