Description Jonathan Kamens 2000-06-18 16:43:23 EDT
The message printed during a2ps installation about a new fonts.map file
being generated doesn't say what directory it's in.  It should.

Furthermore, the script that generates the new fonts.map file should check
if the new one is identical to the one that's already there.  If is it, it
should simply delete the new one, rather than printing a pointless message
about it.
Comment 1 Tim Powers 2000-06-19 17:20:39 EDT
It has been fixed. The messages are just being sent to /dev/null. It should
never have made it out the door in that state anyway since our polijcy is not to
allow pre and post messages to lprint messages. 4.13-4 should fix this in
