bcr added a comment to D26914: WINE Section: Launching Your First WINE Program.

Can you provide the image file as well?
It's a good starting text. A sweep through it for the use of "you" would be good.

bcr added a comment to D26864: col(1): Add EXAMPLES section.

I think it is OK, since vim is popular enough, even though it is not in the base system. If we can't find an example that uses a base system utility, that is.

Tue, Oct 20, 6:41 PM

Mon, Oct 19

bcr accepted D26850: Add a section on enabling HTTP2 in Apache, included in this diff is the following: Document the second mod_http2 port and why it should be used; Document how to enable for single virtual hosts or globally; Note incompatibility with mpm; Show how....

Reads well, thanks for this addition!

I think we won't progress here if we don't get someone else to review the src parts.

Minor line break needed in the man page.

Sun, Oct 11, 1:42 PM
bcr added a comment to D26739: Add network QoS support for PCP to iscsi initiator..

Thanks for implementing that feature.
There is a minor mandoc issue, easy to fix. Running "mandoc -Tlint" and textproc/igor will usually tell you about them.

Wed, Oct 7, 4:54 PM
bcr added a comment to D26146: ul(1): Remove references to colcrt(1) and nroff(1).

Yes, I would remove it. We're using mandoc and people can install as many things from ports as they like, but we can't reflect that in our man pages.

Wed, Oct 7, 1:08 PM

bcr added a comment to D26520: Document all the 'documented' devctl_* kernel functions..

Minor typo only. Did you run textproc/igor and "mandoc -Tlint" over them? I don't think they'll give any extra warning besides .Dd, but it does not hurt to check.
Thanks for writing these man pages.

Sep 22 2020, 6:13 AM

bcr accepted D26184: nsswitch.conf(5): recommend placing cache after files.

@bcr unfortunately, mandoc has much to complain about with this man page. But none of its complaints were introduced by my change. Would you approve this PR as is, and then I can submit a separate one to fix the issues?

rgrimes: me being essentially a manpage rookie as well, unfortunately I can't provide an advice to Denis on how proceed from here. None of the lines fill entirely or extend past 80 columns, and all sentences are terminated by line breaks. What else should we improve re. formatting? As non-native English speakers, we can also try to improve text composition and flow a bit, but I guess this is not what you had in mind?

bcr added a comment to D25907: Document automatic handling of font height for BDF files.

The addition sounds to me like that only HEX files have that comment (and hence is set in that case).
If that is not the case, I think writing: "... for BDF and HEX files ..." would make it clear that it applies to both.
