Spec Name or Url: georgeanelson.com/man-apropos2.spec
SRPM Name or Url: georgeanelson.com/man-apropos2-1.0.1-2.src.rpm
Replacement for apropos (man package) that prints only entries containing all
the words being searched for.  The original apropos prints all lines that
match the first word, then all lines that match the second word, and so on. 
Apropos2 is equivalent to "apropos word1 | grep word2 | ... | grep wordn".

This is my first package, so I need a sponsor.  Chris Grau has offered to sponsor me.

I am the author of apropos2, which is derived from apropos.  I have contacted the man maintainer, Federico Lucifredi; he says apropos2 looks interesting, but that he is rather busy now.  He is also concerned about changing the behavior of apropos, so apropos2 might be added to man instead of replacing apropos.  Feedback from users of apropos2 (and apropos) would help with making that decision.
