Description Kalin KOZHUHAROV 2005-08-15 00:34:35 UTC
While trying to find what was changed in the man-pages package (after emerge
-vDatu world), I couldn't find the Changes file. Later look in the ebuild
revealed that it is not installed by default.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge =sys-apps/man-pages-2.07
2. less /usr/share/doc/man-pages-2.07/Changes.gz

Actual Results:  
File not there.

Expected Results:  
See that file to check why version bump was needed.

Will provide a patch shortly.

Add Changes and Changes.old for install

This was tested on x86, but I think will work on all arch-s.

2.07 already installs the Changes files
Comment 3 Kalin KOZHUHAROV 2005-08-15 20:33:27 UTC
OK, I saw it in portage now.

But since when is there a practice to change ebuilds without adding -r?? to the

And without even mentioning the changes in the Changelog??

it's a trivial change, no real gain in forcing a rev bump
