build.log for app-doc/manpages

Doing an emerge update, app-doc/eclass-manpages-20210712 was pulled in, and errored out with:

 * checking 185 files for package collisions
 * This package will overwrite one or more files that may belong to other
 * packages (see list below). You can use a command such as `portageq
 * owners / <filename>` to identify the installed package that owns a
 * file. If portageq reports that only one package owns a file then do
 * NOT file a bug report. A bug report is only useful if it identifies at
 * least two or more packages that are known to install the same file(s).
 * If a collision occurs and you can not explain where the file came from
 * then you should simply ignore the collision since there is not enough
 * information to determine if a real problem exists. Please do NOT file
 * a bug report at unless you report exactly
 * which two packages install the same file(s). See
 * for tips on how
 * to solve the problem. And once again, please do NOT file a bug report
 * unless you have completely understood the above message.
 * Detected file collision(s):
 *      /usr/share/man/man5/font-ebdftopcf.eclass.5.bz2

 * Package 'app-doc/eclass-manpages-20210712' NOT merged due to file
 * collisions. If necessary, refer to your elog messages for the whole
 * content of the above message.

I do indeed have media-gfx/ebdftopcf-2.0 installed (because of media-fonts/dina) and it does include the /usr/share/man/man5/font-ebdftopcf.eclass.5.bz2 file:

$ equery f ebdftopcf
 * Searching for ebdftopcf ...
 * Contents of media-gfx/ebdftopcf-2:

Last time I emerged media-gfx/ebdftopcf was on 2019-10-14, but there are no newer versions available in Portage.
Comment 1 Israel G. Lugo 2021-07-12 21:08:28 UTC
I got the name of the build.log attachment wrong. It's the build.log for app-dpc/eclass-manpages, of course.
Comment 2 Amel Hodzic 2021-07-15 18:19:54 UTC
the font-ebdftopcf.eclass.5.bz2 file should be removed from media-gfx/ebdftopcf. 
Since media-gfx/ebdftopcf is just "a helper Makefile for generating PCF fonts from BDF files", I don't see why the manpage of its eclass shouldn't be included in app-doc/eclass-manpages.

CC'ing maintainers of media-gfx/ebdftopdf to get their attention.
