Minor grammar:

On what line?

Thanks for doing this. We've needed a page for a while. Have you run it past the igor tool?

It's just "fuse"

51–52 ↗(On Diff #55253)

This sentence doesn't really add anything (IMO)

53–56 ↗(On Diff #55253)

Grammar here is off and I'm not sure this sentence adds anything

Do we need to say these are read-only?

80 ↗(On Diff #55259)

"like normal" is a bit vague; is this "cached in the VFS layer as usual"?

122 ↗(On Diff #55259)

I'd suggest the Pc macro for the closing paren (and probably .Po for its mate, for consistency).

Isn't that pretty obvious, for these two?

I’d discourage use of .Po and .Pc. Why make it harder to read?

I have no opinion. You two please sort it out amongst yourselves; I'll go either way.

Precedent suggests that either is acceptable. Our man1 section currently includes about 383 files that use ( and ) directly, and 11 that use .Po and .Pc . But since @bjk is a doc committer and @cem isn't, I'll commit it as @bjk suggested if I don't hear from either of you in the next 24 hours.

cem added a comment.Mar 27 2019, 12:47 AM

Please just use ordinary parentheses. The macros make pages harder to read and provide no benefit. As you note, plain parens are the vastly predominant style. I, too, would be curious why @bjk suggests using the macros.

danfe added a subscriber: danfe.Mar 27 2019, 6:19 AM

I was under impression that macros should be used when normal parentheses could not be, because of another nearby macro would garble formatting. Something like when closing parenthesis follows another macro, there'd be an extra space inserted before it, and to avoid this, one uses macros.

That said, I'd also like to hear a definitive answer from the doc team.

That makes sense, @danfe . In this case the closing paren immediately follows the .Xr macro.

I recall that several years ago, we (as a project) have decided to use separate words (file system) rather than filesystem, see e.g. tunefs(8) et al. You might want to consider this, and/or ask someone who knows these bylaws better.

70 ↗(On Diff #55269)

ABI is an abbreviation and thus should be uppercased. Ditto below.

Provide a link to the (small) word list in the FDP.

I'd suggest simplifying this sentence by removing the first clause and starting the next with "Userspace daemons can …".

Suggest "or even" -> plain "or".

(Or perhaps @bcr's wordlist implies "Userland" is preferred to "Userspace." Either way.)

54 ↗(On Diff #55492)

I might chop off everything after "languages." in this sentence.

The object of contrast (kernel) is implied by the "userspace" characterization above. There's also some philosophical nitpick argument about programming languages not necessarily being unable to run in the kernel, but I don't feel that argument should be weighed too heavily :-).

.Xr … ) renders correctly and use of trailing symbols is extremely common. (E.g., trailing commas in .Sh SEE ALSO section Xr lists.)

Thanks, @bcr.
