I've released man-db 2.6.5.


man-db contains an implementation of the man command, which is the
primary way of examining the on-line help files (manual pages).  Other
utilities provided include the whatis and apropos commands for searching
the manual page database, the manpath utility for determining the manual
page search path, and the maintenance utilities mandb, catman and
zsoelim.  The package requires a troff installation, such as groff (GNU
troff) to format and display the manual pages.

About this release

This release fixes a regression introduced in 2.6.4 that broke man's
--warnings option even on systems with versions of groff supporting it.

man now automatically falls back to C.UTF-8 and then en_GB.UTF-8 if
trying to find a UTF-8 locale on a system without
/usr/share/i18n/SUPPORTED.  Thanks to Peter Schiffer.

For full details, please see the files NEWS and ChangeLog in the source
