Gidday,

I've released man-pages-3.33.tar.gz - man pages for Linux

Because of the kernel.org problems, the release artifacts are in
different locations than usual (and some of these changes may become
permanent):

This release tarball is available for download at:

    http://man7.org/linux/man-pages/download/man-pages-3.33.tar.gz

The online changelog is available at
http://man7.org/linux/man-pages/changelog.html#release_3.33
(blogged at
http://linux-man-pages.blogspot.com/2011/09/man-pages-333-is-released.html
) and the current version of the pages is browsable at
http://man7.org/linux/man-pages/

A git repository for man-pages can be found on github. You can clone
the repository with the command:

    git clone [email protected]:mkerrisk/man-pages.git

A few changes in this release that may be of interest to readers of this
list are listed below.

Cheers,

Michael
