This is automatically generated email about problems in a man page for which
you appear to be responsible.  If you are not the right person or list, tell
me and I will attempt to correct my database.

See http://catb.org/~esr/doclifter/problems.html for details on how and
why these patches were generated.  Feel free to email me with any questions.
Note: These patches do not change the mod date of any manual page.  You
may wish to do that by hand.

Problems with elinkskeys.5:

1. Since this page was generated from db2man, I understand that
some of its problems may be due to db2man bugs that need to be reported
upstream.  I am sending this heads-up nevertheless because at least
some of the problems can be fixed or worked around in your sources.

2. Running text in what should be a Unix command synopsis.
The right fix for this is to change the section name.

3. Ambiguous or invalid backslash.  This doesn't cause groff a problem.
but it confuses doclifter and may confuse older troff implementations.
