Error Summary

I think the manual pages just conflict. It’s unfortunate but unavoidable at scale.

CC @Conan_Kudo - should we add any conflict markers with other packages?

Why’s it snap(1)? On Ubuntu at least it’s snap(8), which wouldn’t conflict in this case. Is there a rationale for the difference?

Edit: i just checked on 16.04, It’s properly in section 8, but the manpage itself says snap(1); I’ll fix this.

Edit 2: I was wrong: it’s snap.1. Not sure what’s renaming it. Fixing it.

This is something I asked about fixing in snapd a year ago when the issue was first discovered (RH#1456847), but unfortunately I was told at the time that the snapd man page generator didn’t support setting the section properly and “sections don’t matter anyway”.

So… Here we are?
