it's not a ' it's a ,

it's in the upstream source - it is supposed to be a . on the first line.

this is either:

the upstream is rik van riel so I'm not sure how much different that is.

psutils is something else altogether..
Comment 3 Seth Vidal 2003-11-07 08:59:45 EST
binkley:~$ rpm -qf /usr/share/man/man1/ps.1.gz

Comment 4 Jef Spaleta 2004-01-29 13:56:53 EST
Not really sure what upstream means in this case...so im not going to
close it upstream...yet.

But I'm marking it Easyfix.
Comment 5 Seth Vidal 2004-01-29 13:59:03 EST
Meaning the people maintaining procps (which I think is rik van riel)
has fixed this in the latest release at that website.

rik doesn't appear to be maintaining this as part of his job at red hat...

that's why it's not exactly upstream
still, trivial fix.
