man-pages-2.69 is released

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]



Some news:

* man-pages now has a website:

  The site includes HTML versions of the current set of man-pages.

* Starting with man-pages-2.69, each man page now includes a COLOPHON
  section at the end of the page which indicates the version of
  man-pages in which this page is released, and also contains a
  pointer to the man-pages web site.

Repeating some old news:

* As from now, my address as man-pages maintainer has changed
  to [email protected]  (Mail to the old address will
  continue to work for a while, but eventually I will close
  that account.)

* The list [email protected] has been created for
  the purpose of discussing Linux man page bugs, patches,
  and maintenance.  To subscribe, send a message to
  [email protected], with the body:

       subscribe linux-man
