Xpra: Ticket #66: "mdocml" cannot process xpra.1

Hi- I just got the latest revision of the xpra man page because the one I had was not readable by "mandoc", and the current xpra.1 has the same issue. Which is: xpra.1:368:2: FATAL: line scope broken, syntax violated Line 368 is .PP Just trying to get the different options to disable while debugging. I can use "groff" to get some human readable output, though it is a hard-to-read format.

ps. I can get good output from groff, using groff -man -Tascii xpra.1|less so this is a very minor issue. (Might be bigger if you want systems that rely on "mandoc" to work out-of-the-box)

That would be great, but I cannot get any warnings or errors here.

Any suggestions for a fix? Or a where can I get mdoc for Fedora?

I'm not a whiz a roff macros, but deleting the ".TP" line just before the ".PP" line seems to make mandoc happy and still produces good-looking output.

There are Mac & Windows binaries for mandoc available from http://mdocml.bsd.lv/ so if you have one of those systems, you could try running xpra.1 through it there.
