The file doc/man-sections/cipher-negotiation.rst is missing from the from the openvpn-2.5.6 source tarball, making it hard to rebuild the openvpn(8) man page from source.

That file is also missing from the "openvpn_sections" assignment in doc/Makefile, meaning that the openvpn(8) man page won't get rebuilt if the man-sections/cipher-negotiation.rst file changes.

The underlying problem seems to be that doc/Makefile.am has not been updated according to the directions in the file:

# NOTE: Remember to add source .rst files to $(dist_noinst_DATA) below
# This could be automated with GNU Make, but we need BSD Make support

This has been forgotten for doc/man-sections/cipher-negotiation.rst. Trivial patch attached.

I reported this as a bug a while ago, but I’m not sure they get noticed.

For reference: https://community.openvpn.net/openvpn/attachment/ticket/1461

Thanks for spotting this & reporting, and sorry for not picking up
the trac ticket.  Sometimes we're too busy and only pay attention
to the openvpn-devel list & our IRC channel.

Tested with master and 2.5 "make dist".

Your patch has been applied to the master and release/2.5 branch.

commit 7c8dd98ec10f61c3b014b64c24090717cd6ebf05 (master)
