Oh it's mandoc.  OK, sorry for misreading the web page.

Are you using the backport on the manpages.d.o server, then ?

The source for this patched version is in only available in NEW ?
(Ie only to DDs ?)

You see, I find this kind of chasing tiresome - whether I'm the user,
or the service operator.  I expect you do too.  Of course you're
probably hoping not to need to patch mandoc again.

How did you deploy the patched mandoc ?  I want to know this so I can
know how the source code can be automatically found and published.


Ian Jackson <ijackson@chiark.greenend.org.uk>   These opinions are my own.

If I emailed you from an address @fyvzl.net or @evade.org.uk, that is
a private address which bypasses my fierce spamfilter.
