The output ends after "Barracks" I couldn't reproduce this with latest S2_5 code, even with LANGUAGE=de. >> Otherwise, freeciv-manual is unloved and unlikely to receive >> much maintenance.

What I mean is that freeciv-manual isn't really for "folks", it's a helper for us Freeciv maintainers to maintain our own wiki (although as you'll have noticed, we haven't even been doing that). I occasionally use it for other things like reviewing the effects of a change to the help system in bulk (which is where the messy government help came from). For it to be a credible user-facing tool, we'd want to make it more complete, make USE_HTML a runtime option, etc; so far no-one's had the spare effort or inclination. I've raised patch #5388 to document this more obviously. _______________________________________________________ Reply to this item at: <http://gna.org/bugs/?22796> _______________________________________________ Message sent via/by Gna! http://gna.org/ _______________________________________________ Freeciv-dev mailing list Freecivemail@example.com https://mail.gna.org/listinfo/freeciv-dev
