Description Siddhesh Poyarekar 2011-04-20 06:19:43 EDT
Description of problem:

glibc has been ignoring the "order" keyword in /etc/host.conf for some years now, but the manpage for host.conf still documents the option without mentioning that it does not do anything any more.

The order keyword support was removed in the following commit upstream:


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man host.conf
Actual results:
man page has information for the "order" keyword

Expected results:
man page should not have information for the "order" keyword or at least mention that the keyword does not do anything and that one needs to use /etc/nsswitch.conf now for this functionality.
