Bug#1016527: rst2man: --date should be used to form the .TH title headin

From: Alejandro Colomar
Subject: Bug#1016527: rst2man: --date should be used to form the .TH title heading
Date: Tue, 02 Aug 2022 12:56:18 +0200

Package: python3-docutils
Version: 0.17.1+dfsg-2
Severity: normal

The --date argument to rst2man(1) produces the following text:

    Generated on: YYYY-MM-DD

And that text is put in the NAME section of the manual page.  That
is incorrect.  The date should be put as the 3rd argument to the
.TH macro, preferably in ISO 8601 format (YYYY-MM-DD):
