Wanted to use asciidoc to create current man pages for git, but cannot get asciidoc3 to run.

This is what seems to have been "installed"

root@x064:[/opt/lib/python3.7]find . | grep asciidoc

Can always be user-error, but generally, it just installs. Maybe the .post4 bit is in the way, but I do not know what to correct. Suggestions welcome.

This repo is currently not hosted on the yet, though it is making slow progress, tracked in #55).

Hi, this is the "unfortunate and weird split" asciidoc3 speaking.
Indeed the PyPI/pip installation as root does not work. That is a known amd intended behavior: because of the many conf-files you need to run 'asciidoc3_postinstall' immediately after 'pip3 install'. This makes only sense as a normal user (not root) with option --user: 'normaluser$ pip3 install --user asciidoc3'.
For system wide installation (as root) we recommend to download the tarball 'asciidoc3-3.1.0.tar.gz'
