These aren't for general consumption, they run the CTDB test suite.
Can we assume that someone who wants to run the test suite can run then
with the --help option? :-)
Otherwise we need to find time to do this...

We have a pending to-do to either take a patch posted to the list back
on 2015-10-10 or consider not installing ctdb_diagnostics. Some of the
output is useful, some not. It is something we need to take the time
to revisit. For now I guess we should just grab Martijn's manpage and

None of these are invoked directly. They are internal helpers. Right
now they get installed into /usr/bin/ but we should move them
somewhere, like /usr/libexec/ctdb/. We just need time to research the
modern place to put these sorts of things and to do the job properly.
Advice gladly accepted! :-)

I think there are at most 2 manpages to be written from scratch.
Well, we might also consider writing one for ctdb_natgw, depending on
how we do things in the future... but for now we can consider it to be
a helper that won't be invoked directly.
peace & happiness,
