* Sun Aug 1 2004 Alan Cox <>
- Fix requirements (#126601)

* Wed Mar 31 2004 Adrian Havill <> 1.5m2-6
- reorder MANSECT so that normal pages (with translations) take
  precedence over the English-only POSIX pages (#119554)

* Fri Mar 12 2004 Adrian Havill <> 1.5m2-4
- direct nroff stderr to /dev/null so no broken pipe err msgs appear
  when the user quits an error page prior to the full display (#117463)
- removed bogus whatis search-n-destroy trigger (#117961)
- don't complain about no lang resource when lang is C/POSIX (#108934)

* Mon Feb 09 2004 Adrian Havill <> 1.5m2-2
- add all locale man pages
- convert all msgs and manpages to utf-8
- downconvert via transliteration C locale man pages just in case
- patch #3, #8, #10, #17, #29, #31 no longer needed-- made it upstream
- patch #9, #14 and #19 now superfluous-- strs already termed and len checked
- disable patch #22: defer cat creation to existence of dir, not conf directive
- patch #32 mostly merged upstream. Keep the "-a" in grep though so all
  locales' grep see man pages as text not binary (patch 37)
- iconv patch no longer needed now that utf-8-to-legacy conversion is not
- patch #52 and #53 not needed: CJK all point to nroff instead of groff, let
  the nroff script decide, based on the charset of the environment and/or the
  charset of the man page, as to what parameters to pass to groff (and
  whether iconv preprocessing is necessary)
- the string "NROFF_OLD_CHARSET", if present in the man.config for the NROFF
  path, will now be replaced by the old character set so that nroff can figure
  out what the character set/encoding is
- fix man to reflect status codes returned by forked child processes (#115204)
- lots of makewhatis changes: re-add custom rh client stuff (/usr/bin vs
  /usr/sbin), -o option, /var/cache/man, utf-8 verification, convert the
  encoding spaghetti in the makewhatis awk script to UTF-8, identify languages
  in comments


- Greek man pages and messages
- makewhatis fix
