Package: libvulkan-dev
Followup-For: Bug #939999

Just a minor update,

section 'API Reference Pages' says:

""" In addition to the format published here, it is possible to generate other
formats from the reference page sources, such as PDF or Unix nroff man page
sources. """

I couldn't find the nroff generator in the git repo, but maybe I didn't
search well, (maybe it was removed in master head in git?).

Also, I found out that indeed it is possible, as Arch does ship with vulkan man


Sources (not upstreamed fully yet) are in this forked repo:

and some diffs can be seen here:

So, it looks pretty easy. Bulk of the work is done by asciidoctor output plugin,
which is part of official upstream asciidoctor:

So, there is very little extra work to do beyond maybe adding a small patch to
docs, and adding a package.

Thank you.
