Description SEKINE Tatsuo 2005-07-17 12:02:03 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; ja-JP; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
Please check the patch which I'll put later. Following description is for the patch.

- ".UC" is the macro for the UCB distribution. I think that logrotate was not born in UCB.

- In the configuration file, it is possible to specify multipul files.

- Normally tab stop length is 8 characters, so "+8n" is much better.

- ".pp" is not mandoc(man/mdoc) macro, so I guessed that ".PP" is appropriate.

The others are simple typo/copy&paste mistake.

In this case, I work for JM project, which is the translation project for Japanese.

That project is not Fedora specific, so I cecked out original man page from Therefore this (and #163366) report is not
for FC distribution. Because I could not choose appropriate one.

This new man page is including the description of some extra functionalities
which are provided by FC patch. This new one is fine for FC users, but it is not
correct for the original logrotate users.

My suggestion is that "Do as much of the development work as possible directly
in the *upstream* packages.", which is part of Fedora Project's Objectives. If
the all of patches are merged into original repository, more people will be made
