#5140 closed enhancement (fixed)


Reported by: pierre Owned by: lfs-book
Priority: normal Milestone: 11.3
Component: Book Version: git
Severity: normal Keywords:


New minor:

The most notable changes in man-pages-6.01 are the following:

- Build system fixes.  These were quite bad for distributors, which is
   the reason we released 6.01 so soon after 6.00.

- Document EOF, FAN_MARK_IGNORE, STATX_DIOALIGN, and a few feature
   test macros.

I suppose we can live with the spurious messages in the dev book until the next lfs update around November 1st.

That's reasonable. It's not terribly important to do in the next two weeks.

Changes in man-pages-6.01

New and rewritten pages


Newly documented interfaces in existing pages



open.2, statx.2




Global changes

Build system:

Update manual page dates (TH 3rd argument) when creating the tarball with 'make dist'. this removes the need for a tstamp commit before each release.

Don't print spurious errors from the Makefile that are not relevant.

Manual pages' sections:

Title (.TH):

Remove the hardcoded date (TH 3rd argument), and replace it by a placeholder that should be changed when creating the tarball. This removes the need for a tstamp commit before each release.
