 Priority:  normal                          |   Milestone:  6.3                          
Component:  Book                            |     Version:  SVN                          
 Severity:  normal                          |    Keywords:                               
--------------------------------------------+-------------------------------
 The maintainer pushes old man-pages to the manpages/Old directory, and
 does not guarantee any finite lifetime of old tarballs even there. So the
 link in the book is not stable (it is almost certain to be dead in two
 weeks after a release), and this breaks jhalfs.

 Thus, LFS should mirror man-pages on linuxfromscratch.org and point to
 this mirror as a recommended download location.
