Gidday, I've released man-pages-3.33.tar.gz - man pages for Linux Because of the kernel.org problems, the release artifacts are in different locations than usual (and some of these changes may become permanent): This release tarball is available for download at: http://man7.org/linux/man-pages/download/man-pages-3.33.t... The online changelog is available at http://man7.org/linux/man-pages/changelog.html#release_3.33 (blogged at http://linux-man-pages.blogspot.com/2011/09/man-pages-333... ) and the current version of the pages is browsable at http://man7.org/linux/man-pages/ A git repository for man-pages can be found on github. You can clone the repository with the command: git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:mkerrisk/man-pages.git A few changes in this release that may be of interest to readers of this list are listed below.
