RabbitMQ man Pages

Source Files

These pages contain source files that reside in the server repository. They are converted to HTML using mandoc:

# from rabbitmq/rabbitmq-server
bazel build //deps/rabbit:web-manpages
tar xf bazel-bin/deps/rabbit/web-manpages.tar


Since these files are generated, it is important to keep them in sync with the source. Accepting community contributions — which will always come as website pull requests — is fine but the person who merges them is responsible for backporting all changes to the source pages.

Adding a New Man Page

When a new man page is added, its contents as generated by mandoc have to be copied into this directory. A new wrapper DocBook page must be added to the parent (site) directory, see site/rabbitmq-diagnostics.8.xml for example.
