Comment 1 Ding-Yi Chen 2010-07-13 02:34:16 EDT
Hmm, seems like the files in mansupfr.tar.bz2 are not extracted.

However, since lynx also come with its own French translation, 
I afraid including lynx will cause file conflict. 

Does French translation in lynx package correct and accurate?
Comment 5 Ding-Yi Chen 2010-07-13 19:23:07 EDT
Actually I intent to include the mansupfr  back, as there is still some logic to process the content. 

Still need to make sure which man pages in it  might trigger file conflicts.
Comment 7 Ding-Yi Chen 2010-07-15 21:46:02 EDT
This bug reveals that some man-pages in mansupfr are not included.

However, add back the mansupfr may trigger file conflict with packages that bring their own French translation, so I would suggest this bug to be fixed in 6.1.0.
Comment 9 RHEL Product and Program Management 2011-01-07 10:33:58 EST
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to
address this request at this time. Red Hat invites you to
ask your support representative to propose this request, if
appropriate and relevant, in the next release of Red Hat
Enterprise Linux. If you would like it considered as an
exception in the current release, please ask your support
Comment 17 Jens Petersen 2011-12-20 01:51:34 EST
Is this fixed in Fedora?
Comment 18 Jens Petersen 2011-12-27 00:56:59 EST
My only concern is that this could possibly introduce some file conflict regressions.
Comment 19 A S Alam 2011-12-28 23:51:31 EST
bug #603627 need to consider for Regression.
Comment 21 Ding-Yi Chen 2012-01-08 19:13:34 EST

Sebastien Aime has done the verified the man-pages-fr and I have excluded the man pages which do not pass the verification.
