  • Add ts to usr.sbin Makefile

I cant immediately spot any other nits with the mdoc, but perhaps you should add a note about when ts(1) was added to FreeBSD in the history section header?

Also, I can't wait for this one to land, it's super handy and I can't believe I didn't know about it until now. :)


I'm not quite sure about this one; it doesn't really follow existing syntax with the CVS expansion, and the date doesn't follow the "Month Day, Year" way that we usually designate the document date with.


.Nm has already been defined above, so I believe our convention is to shorten other instances of the document name.

I will note that this is done elsewhere in the mdoc file, so perhaps it's a change that should go upstream instead? That's up to you and upstream.

Address some manpage nits.

mandoc -Tlint ts.1 did not show any warnings/errors.

Include sys/types.h instead of sys/cdefs.h

mdoc(7) looks good to me.

Other than the question, I'm still happy with the mdoc, so will accept once that's been answered.


Shouldn't this be .An -nosplit Juraj Lutter Aq Mt .

No, as mandoc would throw an error (yes, I've consulted it with man mdoc) that says:

An -split | -nosplit | first_name ... last_name

That means: An with EITHER -split or -nosplit or first_name ... last_name
