[lvm-devel] patch: lvdisplay, pvdisplay, vgdisplay manpages



(2nd try ;) )

Hi.

In order to solve
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=404058
I've provided some patches for [pv|lv|vg]display.

What they'd do:
- align the wording style used by all three
- replace the numbers in vgcreate with "*" as used in lvcreate and
pvcreate
- for all, removed "logical volume", "physical volume" and "volume
group"
in the description, if it's clear as it's the respective manpage (e.g.
in
the lvdisplay manpage "logical volume size" -> "size")
- improved the explanation in some cases (e.g. actual/current LV of the
VG)
- Sometimes the unit seemed to be wrong (e.g. fixed kilobytes or
sectors,
where actually MiB was used)... wrote "human-readable format" in that
cases.

Be warned:
- I removed all lines, which were not there when I tried the commands,
but
this could just result because I do not have some options set or do not
use
lvm1. So _REALLY_ double check if I did not remove something which is
actually not obsolete.


Again,.. please check whether everything is correct what I've changed.


Cheers,
Chris.
