--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2009-5839
2009-06-04 20:33:05
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : man
Product     : Fedora 11
Version     : 1.6f
Release     : 20.fc11
URL         : http://primates.ximian.com/~flucifredi/man/
Summary     : A set of documentation tools: man, apropos and whatis
Description :
The man package includes three tools for finding information and/or
documentation about your Linux system: man, apropos, and whatis. The
man system formats and displays on-line manual pages about commands or
functions on your system. Apropos searches the whatis database
(containing short descriptions of system commands) for a string.
Whatis searches its own database for a complete word.

The man package should be installed on your system because it is the
primary way to find documentation on a Linux system.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This update reduces complexity of makewhatis code, making it faster and removing
obfuscated code lowering chances of bugs.
