> Hi all,
> The attached patch fixes FS#5392 [1].  If hard links are present for a
> man page, all other hard linked files are removed, the man page is
> gzipped and the hard links are updated to the newly compressed man page.
> I didn't deal with the comment the .bz2 files are not change because I
> felt that is unnecessary.  Also, do we even care if man pages have
> permission of 444 instead of 644 as mentioned in the final comment?
>  From the comments in the bug report, the ownership of the traceroute
> man page should probably be dealt with in the iputils package and
> probably needs a separate bug report opened.
> This is the first patch I've submitted and I'm new to git so let me know
> if I've done something wrong...
> Cheers,
> Allan
