Bug#593361: glibc-doc-reference: The manual is obsolete (for version 2.8 whereas Debian has libc 2.11)

Package: glibc-doc-reference
Version: 2.11.1-1
Severity: normal

The manual is obsolete. It is said:

  This is Edition 0.12, last updated 2007-10-27, of `The GNU C Library
  Reference Manual', for Version 2.8 of the GNU C Library.

But the current libc version in Debian is 2.11.

For instance, for customizing printf, the manual says to use
register_printf_function, but this function is now deprecated.

BTW, that's strange that the package version doesn't reflect the
glibc version the manual has been written for. This is confusing.
