Home from work today

Catherine was throwing up all night last night, so I got up to the kids a lot. Just one of those things. I’m home from work today to help mind the little people whilst Catherine continues to feel sick.

Mandocs

The patch has made it into Linus’ 2.5 BitKeeper tree, which I guess means it will be in 2.6.0-test3 when it is released. The next step is to verify that all the changes in the most recent version of the patch made it into the tree, because I am not sure what version Linus accepted.

Then there’s keeping track of new functionality, and actually keeping it working. I might keep generating man pages and putting them online for the next few months as a way of making sure that they still generate properly. Hopefully someone out there might find them useful as well…

Later…

Ahhh, it’s an older version of the mandocs patch, the one where Alan Cox thought the format could do with some work. I’ll have to see what I can do about getting the new version into the kernel now…
