Comment 1 Carlos O'Donell 2013-11-07 21:55:01 EST
No documentation changes for Fedora are required to accept glibc 2.18.

Upstream packaging changes for the 2.18 release are listed here:

The only relevant one is the removal of pt_chown which now requires /dev/pts to be mounted gid 5 to support automatic permission changes. This has been in Fedora for a long time now and I don't think there is anything we need to document.

Therefore in summary: No docs changes.

I've marked this CLOSED/NOTABUG, please tell me if that isn't correct.
