Manual Pages

Hi, I've been wondering why the Subversion commands do not have manual
pages. Why can't I run "man svn" or "man svn-checkout" and expect to see
something useful?

It's not that "nobody found the time to write them yet", as you often hear
in other projects in reply to this questions. The thing is that someone
*already* wrote such manual pages for the "svn" command, and they can be
found in the "svnbook". See

        http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn.ref.html#svn.ref.svn

And proceed with "next" to see fine manual pages for all the svn subcommands.

Wouldn't it be useful to be able to see these manual pages with a simple "man"
command, instead of needing to do a search on the Internet?

Is there anywhere else where I should be raising this question, instead of
in this list?

Thanks,
Nadav.
