Patch for telnet man page
Comment 2 Daniel Challen 2004-12-16 09:52:35 EST
This corrupt man page is still present in Fedora Core 3 (fresh install
tested on 2 different machines, and reports from other users)
 krb5-workstation-1.3.4-7
Comment 3 Daniel Challen 2004-12-16 11:41:39 EST
I've checked out the original manpages
(krb5-1.3.[345]/src/appl/telnet/telnet/telnet.1) in the sources from
http://web.mit.edu/kerberos/ (versions 1.3.3, 1.3.4 and 1.3.5) none of
these have the excess whitespace. It appears the bug has crept in
during the packaging for Fedora.

I have fixed krb5-1.3-manpage-patchs patch in CVS, so it should
be fixed in next krb5 build.
Comment 7 Ulrich Drepper 2005-02-20 15:54:36 EST
Confirmed fixed in krb5-workstation-1.3.6-3.
