+doclifter lifts documents in nroff markups to XML-DocBook.
+This package ships two Python scripts:
+_doclifter translates documents written in troff macros like man pages to
+ DocBook, that can then be converted to other formats or translated.
+_manlifter is a mass-conversion script and test harness for doclifter.
+ It can find and convert _all_ man pages in your system with one simple
+ command, but in a few cases.
+See the man pages, also in HTML format in /usr/doc/docfilter*/html
+docfilter's author is Eric S. Raymond.
