[Nmh-workers] It's mh_profile(5) and mts.conf(5).

Here are man pages sourced by other "one line" man pages.

    man1/new.1 ← man/fnext.man
    man1/new.1 ← man/fprev.man
    man1/new.1 ← man/unseen.man

Those three make sense give new(1) says

    fnext is equivalent to new -mode fnext
    fprev is equivalent to new -mode fprev
    unseen is equivalent to new -mode unseen

These next two are similar, e.g. the, need it exist, `flists is
equivalent to flist -all' page sources flist.

    man1/flist.1 ← man/flists.man
    man1/folder.1 ← man/folders.man

There's the recently added

    man7/nmh.7 ← man/MH.man

so `man MH' gives them nmh(7) to read.

And lastly there's these two.

    man5/mh-profile.5 ← man/mh_profile.man
    man5/mh-tailor.5 ← man/mts.conf.man

The files they document are $HOME/.mh_profile and /etc/nmh/mts.conf.  I
don't think mh-profile(5) and mh-tailor(5) should exist or be referred
to;  it's just confusion and clutter.  May they go, their content being
moved into their real-name man pages, and cross references updated?

Cheers, Ralph.
