Description

Any information about "watch-dir" feature missed in man pages for transmission-daemon at least. May be the same thing for transmission-remote?

I don't know what you mean. The daemon's watch-directory feature is described in its manpage:

     -c directory
             Directory to watch for new .torrent files to be added.  As they
             are added to this directory, the daemon will load them into
             Transmission.


     -C      Do not watch for new .torrent files.


As for remote... transmission-remote doesn't have a watch-directory feature, so it doesn't make sense to document it there.

Yes, you're right. My fault. The transmission-daemon man page really has "-c" key description. Actual point was absence of correspondent fields in "settings.json" file supplied in package and correspondent wiki page (http://trac.transmissionbt.com/wiki/EditConfigFiles) has no description for "watch-dir" and "watch-dir-enabled". Actually there is no docs for config files provided with "transmission-daemon" package. Even man page has no reference.

As for remote... it could be useful to set up watch-dir via RPC, it not it?

That's a good idea.

I think probably the best way to do it is by putting a wiki link in the manpage.

Link to wiki with settings.conf is cool, but wiki still has no info about "watch-dir": http://trac.transmissionbt.com/wiki/EditConfigFiles
