ZSH documentation instructions

Description

Currently, the ZSH page says to unpack the documentation the same way as the source tarball. This is inconsistent with other packages which start with the assumption that you are starting from the source tree.

Patch to fix ZSH instructions

comment:1 by Randy McMurchy, 14 years ago

There are several packages which do this exact same thing (provide a comment to unpack the various optional/mandatory tarballs). Either way is acceptable.

Either way uses the one sentence about unpacking or the modified tar command. Either will work. We can use the patch, but it seems there are more important things that would improve the book. :-)

I.e., what already works really should be a secondary item to things that are broken or really need updating.

Yes, I am aware there are plenty of more important things than this (just forgot to label this as a "Low priority" issue), and I don't recall insisting that the issue must be addressed ASAP.

However, I do look for consistency in the book's instructions, and was also going by what Bruce mentioned when I brought up a similar issue a couple months ago - http://linuxfromscratch.org/pipermail/blfs-dev/2007-July/017433.html - but if you say that's not worth spending any time to change, I won't mention it again for other pages in the book.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Patch applied.

And after reconsidering, perhaps Chris is right in that things should be standardized. We'll fix remaining instances as we discover them.
