Description Mateusz Piotrowski freebsd_committer 2021-02-18 10:16:46 UTC
We've got to update the release(7) manual page. It should no longer mention Subversion, but Git instead. Also, we removed support for DOCDIR and NODOC in https://cgit.FreeBSD.org/src/commit/?id=f61e92ca5a23450bc28169bbdd71d7674df98c19 so this should be reflected in the manual as well.

I'll take this, if you don't mind.

    release(7): Remove stray references to DOC* variables

    We now live in the world of git, and release(7) should reflect that.

    As of the commit referenced below, release images also no longer
    include (stale) documentation, as the documentation has moved to
    AsciiDoctor. This means that a few environment variables no longer
    make sense, so remove them from their sections and mention them in
    the compatibility section instead.

    While here, also pet mandoc.

    PR: 253615
    MFC after: 3 days
    MFC with: f61e92ca5a23 release: permanently remove the 'reldoc'
    target and associates
