Reopened. I've missed that patch in the list, sorry.

OK. Then this bug should be left open to indicate that there is still work to be done. Although I'm the submitter, there does not appear to be a way for me to reopen it.

I simply don't have the time (and admittedly a certain lack of interest also) to take care of that. Sorry.

I note that one of the non-Bjarni patches in this list was not applied:

patch: resubmitted -me documentation fixes
12 Nov 2013 01:19:46 -0600
http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-groff/2013-11/msg00007.html

Are there problems with this patch that prevent its being applied to the git repository?

And now almost all of the patches have been applied to the git repository.

Thanks. Note that these patches can be applied as soon as the assignment papers from Bjarni have processed.

The last file in the list should read:

t m a c / g r o f f _ w w w . m a n

(without the spaces). For some reason, this software altered the file name by erroneously inserting an "http".

Thu 19 Dec 2013 07:49:54 AM UTC, original submission:

Fifty-one patches to groff's documentation have been posted to the bug-groff email list in October and November 2013, the vast majority of them by Bjarni Gislason. The following list of messages contain documentation patches that have yet to be applied.

(Each entry includes a URL pointing to an archived copy of the message. However, if possible, the original email message should be used rather than the web archive, as the archival software munges any email addresses anywhere in the message, which results in incorrect patch files when the code being patched contains an email address (or even just a string containing an @). If the web archive is used, instances of "address@hidden" in patch files will have to be fixed by hand.)
