|Summary:||man page variable substitution bug|

Description Brad Smith 2014-10-06 01:03:36 CEST
Looking at the SVN code I noticed the man pages seem to have had the hard coded Unbound version and date removed from the man pages and replaced with @version@ and @date@ respectively. But it appears as if the autoconf script does not substitute those variables when generating the man pages substituting the other relevant variables for the man pages.

Hi Brad, The configure script replaces the version and date in the manpages. Also for builds-from-source-repo. Or is that failing somehow? Best regards, Wouter

But that is NOT what happens when checking out the latest src from SVN. checkout src... ./configure The resulting man pages do NOT have the variables substituted.

Hi Brad, Yes that is wrong. The downloadable tarballs have correct version and date, but I can fix it so that the source builds also have a version and date in the man page. Best regards, Wouter

Oh, ok. Usually I use the release tarballs but I am growing impatient for a release ;) Thanks for fixing this.

Hi Brad, Fixed in the svn trunk. For distos it'll pick the date of the distribution tarball, for source-tree-builds it uses the build-date. Thank you for reporting this and making the man pages look nicer. Best regards, Wouter
