Re: Man Page Simple Error: GETPRIORITY(2)

http://man7.org/linux/man-pages/man2/getpriority.2.html     2015-07-23

1.
What I see: "lower priorities cause more favorable scheduling".
What I expect: "lower values (higher priority) cause more favorable scheduling".

2.
What I see: "Only the superuser may lower priorities".
What I expect: "Only the superuser may lower values (boost/increase
the priorities)".

3.
What I see: "The caller attempted to lower a process priority".
What I expect: "The caller attempted to lower a priority value (to
increase a priority)".

4.
Add to section "SEE ALSO" the reference to "nice(2)" -
http://man7.org/linux/man-pages/man2/nice.2.html

Why I think so: The man page GETPRIORITY(2) should be in synch with
nice(2) http://man7.org/linux/man-pages/man2/nice.2.html
Both getpriority(2) and nice(2) are referred by sched(7) section
"SCHED_OTHER: Default Linux time-sharing scheduling" -
http://man7.org/linux/man-pages/man7/sched.7.html.

[Bug 121211] New: Please provide conventions for documenting subcommands in man-pages(7)

                    in man-pages(7)
           Product: Documentation

        Regression: No

Many programs now provide subcommands, such as git, systemctl, git-remote,
git-hub, and apt.  These programs follow various different inconsistent
conventions for documenting these subcommands in their manpages.  I'm about to
write such a program with subcommands myself.  I'd love to see some standard
conventions documented in man-pages(7).

Note that some programs will want to document all their subcommands in separate
manpages, and others will want a single all-encompassing manpage.  I don't
think man-pages(7) should mandate one or the other approach there, just
establish standards that work either way.

In particular:

Loan offer for Projects Finance (1.5 -1).

Sir,

I am a retired banker, currently working as a consultant.

By virtue of my past working experience, I have contacts to high net worth Individuals and Investment firms
in need to place funds into different projects to generate profits. The funding would be provided as a soft
loan at 3% Return on Investment (ROI) with minimal documentations required to complete the funding modalities.

A commission of 1% is paid to the Intermediary/Agent/Broker who introduce project owners for finance.

I anticipate your reply.

Yours faithfully,

[Bug 120671] New: missing info about userns restrictions

            Bug ID: 120671
           Summary: missing info about userns restrictions

           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All

          Assignee: documentation_man-pages@...
          Reporter: webczat_200@...
        Regression: No

I have noticed that some information related to user namespaces that could be
useful are actually missing from the user_namespaces manpage.
Example: what capabilities do not have effect in user namespace, what
filesystems can or cannot be mounted in a mount namespace assigned to the user
namespace, other applied restrictions, maybe also current security issues with
user namespaces (optional).

Schönen Tag

Schönen Tag,

Ich bin Tessy Coleman. Ich bin 19 Jahre alt Waise. Derzeit bleibe ich
allein. Ich habe eine riesige Summe von $ 2,5 Millionen USD von einer
Sicherheitsfirma , die mein verstorbener Vater hinterlegt, sondern als
Großfamilie Wertsachen in meinem Namen aus offensichtlichen Gründen
abzurufen.

Ich habe die Dokumente, und ich bin die nächsten Angehörigen und
Erben. Ich habe niemanden, mir zu helfen, bitte, wenn Sie mir helfen
können, mich freundlich, um weitere Informationen per E-Mail zurück.

Ihre prompte Antwort wird sehr geschätzt.

Grüße,
Tessy Coleman.

locale.5: adjust conformance

Hi Michael,

Since we now know that glibc does not support all the keywords
mentioned in ISO/IEC TR 14652 [1] and in general glibc aims to
be conforming to POSIX first and foremost, I think it's best
just to drop the reference to ISO/IEC TR 14652 from the man page.

1) http://www.open-std.org/jtc1/SC22/WG20/docs/n972-14652ft.pdf

After this I think the locale related man pages are finally as
complete as they need to be.
