Update of bug #61422 (project groff):

                  Status:             In Progress => Wont Fix               
             Open/Closed:                    Open => Closed                 
                 Summary: [ms] .DS means ".DS I" after all, contradicting
forthcoming documentation => [ms] make .DS mean ".DS L"


Follow-up Comment #3:

Nope.  I changed my mind on this.

It breaks fidelity with the original Volume 2 ms corpus (from the V7 source
distribution, in usr/doc) too much.

I had only occasionally formatted those, and my sampling had gotten me
discouraged by what appear to be errors in the original sources (for instance,
in Kernighan's "Advanced Editing Guide", there is an ".if n" conditional that
messes up line spacing, not visible in typeset output).

But now that I sample some more of these I see that many of them format
nicely, and even without many warnings when '-w all' is given.

I'm withdrawing this ticket.
