Three years ago today, I kicked off the Ubuntu Manpage Repository project with an RFC to the Ubuntu-Doc mailing list. Millions of roff-to-html renderings and page views later, I'm really, really proud of the Ubuntu Manpage Repository! It's such a convenient way to read traditional UNIX manual documentation, which may or may not be present on your local system.
Today, I would like to introduce manpg.es -- a URL shortener for Ubuntu manpages, for use in IRC, mail, wikis, microblogging, etc. Inspired by Martin Pool's excellent pad.lv shortener for Launchpad, I hope you find this useful too!
Save yourself a few keystrokes, and try http://manpg.es/
Note that the logic to guess which manpage you're looking for won't get it right every time, but it's usually pretty darn close. Moreover, improvements are always welcome at lp:ubuntu-manpage-repository ;-)
