(argp) Bug report mail address..


most (I would say all) GNU utilities report the bug reporting line as

 Report bugs to <>.

but argp reports it like this (note the lack of < and >):
 Report bugs to

if argp_program_bug_address is set to "".  But since
it is standard to have < and > around an email address, it is quite
redundant to force the user to add them.

2003-09-16  Alfred M. Szmidt  <>

	* argp/argp-help.c (_help): Put < and > around
	argp_program_bug_address in "Report bugs to".
	* manual/argp.texi: Updated to reflect the above change.
