Comment 1 Jaakko Heinonen freebsd_committer 2010-02-17 13:56:25 UTC
-n and -A are in POSIX.1-2008. Maybe this change would be more
reasonable?

Comment 2 Dan Lukes 2010-02-17 14:47:33 UTC
In the fact, I prefer conformance declarations with extensions like the 
one used in pax or expr manual pages against declaration with exception 
used in ls page.

Eg. something like:

The ls utility is a superset of the IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 (``POSIX.1'').
The options -n and -A conforms to the IEEE Std 1003.1-2008.
The options -I, -g, -o are FreeBSD's extension.


But it's up to comitter.

Dan Lukes's proposal in his latest reply to this PR looks very reasonable. I'll 
try to come up with a patch to integrate it into the ls(1) manual.

I'll take it.

I don't have time to deal with this now.
