Description Robert P. J. Day 2007-03-07 10:00:53 EST
1. The man page for "udevinfo" is incomplete, it doesn't mention "-V" (but
that's being pretty pedantic, i'll admit).

2. The man page for "udevcontrol" is incomplete, see "info udevcontrol" for
missing commands "reload_rules" and "max_childs".

3. The HTML doc page that comes with the udev package is slightly out of date, a
newer version can be found at:

http://www.reactivated.net/writing_udev_rules.html

4. The current udev package 0.97 still installs all of its online docs under
/usr/share/doc/udev-095, if that matters.
Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2007-03-07 12:54:39 EST
1.-3. I will report this upstream.

4. udev-095-17.fc6 is the latest for fc6 ... not udev-097
Comment 2 Robert P. J. Day 2007-03-07 13:01:41 EST
whoops, my mistake on that last one, i must have just misread 095-17 as 097, sorry.
Comment 3 Robert P. J. Day 2007-03-07 13:47:17 EST
I'm not sure if it's appropriate to add extra issues to an open bug report but,
what the heck, I suspect you can pass these upstream as well.  Typoes in "man udev":

(para 2) "... form the system" -> "... from the system."
(para 3) "Rules that match, may" -> "Rules that match may ..."
"configuraton" -> "configuration"
"assignement" -> "assignment"
"A rule may consists ..." -> "A rule may consist ..."
"Asign" -> "Assign"
"inport" -> "import"
"of of the file permissions" -> "of the file permissions"
"IDDRIVER" -> "ID, DRIVER"
"$minor %m" -> "$minor, %m"

adding udev maintainer to CC

Added.

> The man page for "udevcontrol" is incomplete.

Already added in the current version.

> The HTML doc page that comes with the udev package is slightly out of date.

The one in the current udev tree is the latest.

> Typoes in "man udev"

Fixed.

Thanks a lot,
Kay
