See: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=905826#c5

The contents of xinetd.8 have not changed, they are still
out of date even in the latest version of man-pages-fr in Fedora 18/rawhide.

Current content is from:

Looks like this is needed.

Félix> this might not be the only page affected

Yes, probably there are more pages affected.

Fedora package updated:


The update only adds a warning to the xinetd.8 man page that it is
quite outdated. We do not have a re-translated man page.

As this is nothing I can do, I’ll assign the bug to you to decide
how to proceed.
Comment 8 Mike FABIAN 2014-03-04 01:57:39 EST
As we do not have an up-to-date 
French man-page for xinetd, maybe it is OK if I remove the 
French man-page to get the English instead?
Comment 10 Mike FABIAN 2014-05-28 05:48:58 EDT
I added a warning on top of the French xinetd man-page now
stating that it is obsolete and for reliable information
one should consult the English man-page.

This is the same fix we did for Fedora.
