Re: New package: makeself-2.1.5-2

New package "makeself-2.1.5-2" has been uploaded.

makeself is a small shell script that generates a self-extractable
archive from a directory. The resulting file appears as a shell script
(many of those have a .run suffix), and can be launched as is. The
archive will then uncompress itself to a temporary directory and an
optional arbitrary command will be executed (for example an installation
script). Makeself archives also include checksums for integrity
self-validation (CRC and/or MD5 checksums).

Usage: [params] archive_dir file_name label [startup_script] [args]

More info:

makeself -h

Shouldn't this be:

$ -h ?

Not that I want extraneous extensions, anyways.

Why are we using the '.sh' extension with 'makeself', again?

man makeself
Does it make sense that?:

$ man makeself

works but:

$ makeself -h
