  • Processing mdoc man pages like `groff_mdoc.n' fails if I use

   `test-groff'.  Why?

-The mdoc package works only after installation, not with test-groff.
-Reason is that the macro files of mdoc get stripped off the `doc-'
-prefix before they are copied to the final destination.
+Because the source does then not contain the directory "/tmac/mdoc"
+with the needed links to the macro files.
+Users can create this directory and the required links in it in their
+local git repository and add "/tmac/mdoc" to the ".gitignore" file.
