repoman man/repoman.1: Add "BEHAVIOR" section (fix bug 650520)
The manpage references "directory tree", but doesn't explicitly outline the expected behavior when run anywhere above the package directory level. Exact name of section, location within the manpage, and/or wording open to suggestions. Bug: https://bugs.gentoo.org/650520 Requested-by: zlg <zlg@gentoo.org> Signed-off-by: zlg <zlg@gentoo.org>
