Description Arjun Shankar 2013-11-18 15:10:51 UTC
Description of problem:

Because of a security flaw, building 'pt_chown' is disabled by default when building glibc [1]. It is now no more shipped with glibc-common [2]. I guess this means that the man page must go as well.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
man-pages-3.53-1.fc20.noarch

How reproducible:

Always

Steps to Reproduce:
rpm -ql man-pages | grep pt_chown

Actual results:
/usr/share/man/man5/pt_chown.5.gz

Expected results:
--
