Yes, thank you!

How did you change it? Do you have an editor, or some set of replacements?
Simple replacements that improve the layout I'd gladly put into my
Makefile ... the files already get changed, so there's no aesthetical problem
here.

I hope that I'll find some way to improve the manual page.

Sure, thank you very much!

BTW, how about attaching the Backup-HOWTO (as html) in /usr/share/doc/fsvs?
Wouldn't cost anything, would it? Ahhhh .. Of course, the links would have to
be removed.



PS: What do you think about a fsvs-etc-versioning package?
Installation should create a repository in /var/etc-versioning, register /etc
as a working copy, and commit the first things.
Then it should try to get invoked after every package configuration;
there's "APT::Update::Post-Invoke" and "DPkg::Post-Invoke", as well
as "DPkg::Pre-Install-Pkgs"; but no Post-Install-Pkgs, AFAIK.
One of them should get set, so that a commit can be done as often as possibly.

I'd like to get DPkg to call fsvs, but I've found no way there. Going via APT
has the problem that a lot of packages are done in a single call to dpkg ...
although I think there's a way to do only single packages, but I didn't
remember what that was.

Versioning your /etc, /home or even your whole installation?
             Try fsvs (fsvs.tigris.org)!
