Description Sergey S. Starikoff 2013-03-23 15:41:38 UTC
Reading standard documentation I've find a little mistake:

man 5 ebuild:
       The /usr/sbin/ script.

$ file /usr/sbin/
/usr/sbin/ ERROR: cannot open `/usr/sbin/' (No such file or directory)
$ which ebuild
$ file /usr/bin/ebuild
/usr/bin/ebuild: symbolic link to `../lib/portage/bin/ebuild'
$ file /usr/lib/portage/bin/ebuild
/usr/lib/portage/bin/ebuild: Python script, ASCII text executable

I'm not resposible about the best way to fix it, but referring to an unexistent file is a bad thing.
Comment 2 Sergey S. Starikoff 2013-03-24 10:36:36 UTC
Excuse me.
See Also section of man 1 ebuild contains similiar issue (refers to /usr/sbin/
Comment 4 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2013-03-27 17:07:52 UTC

Comment 5 Sergey S. Starikoff 2013-05-07 07:12:00 UTC

Missed fix for translation (at least Russian).
man 5 ebuild (translated) is OK.
default (man 1) manual page (file /usr/share/man/ru/man1/ebuild.1.bz2) still contains outdated refer to non-existent file /usr/sbin/

Please file a new bug for Russian translations.

I was able to correct the Russian page myself, and also found one more in the English make.conf.5:;a=commit;h=b264a7aeb342ac8e2004a851aaa23e97a173de4d
Comment 8 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2013-08-13 00:05:21 UTC
This is fixed in 2.2.0.
