 +We use the '​a2x'​ command to convert an Asciidoc text file to both manpage format as well as other formats. If you are making changes to a man page please edit the corresponding .txt file in the doc/ directory. Next run '​make'​ which will run '​a2x'​ and generate the man page. Simply update your patch contribution with both the changes to the .txt file as well as the created .8 (man page) file. This process allows us to use the .txt file as the master document and all other formats are simply formatted versions of the original.
