This is automatically generated email about problems in a man page for which
you appear to be responsible.  If you are not the right person or list, tell
me and I will attempt to correct my database.

In the last mailing (20 Nov 2004) of these reminders, a bug in my
script suppressed the sending of second and subsequent patches
associated with a maintainer.  This resend is going only to maintainers
with multiple patches; the first one may be one you have already processed.
I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

See http://catb.org/~esr/doclifter/problems.html for details on how and
why these patches were generated.  Feel free to email me with any questions.
Note: These patches do not change the mod date of any manual page.  You
may wish to do that by hand.

Problems with dbz.3:

1. There are multiple name lines.  This makes it impossible to translate
the page to DocBook.  It may also confuse some implementations
of man -k.

Problems with nnrp.access.5:

1. Unknown or invalid macro.  That is, one that does not fit in the
macro set that the man page seems to be using.  This is a serious
error; it often means part of your text is being lost or rendered
incorrectly.
