Critical bug in removepkg


From 'man removepkg':

Code:
When removing a package, it's original file index will 
be moved from /var/log/packages to /var/log/removed_packages.
Likewise, it's installation script will be moved from 
/var/log/scripts to /var/log/removed_scripts.
"it's" → "its"

Technically speaking, considering the well testing and stability of PkgTools, I can say with one hand to heart:

YEAH, that's an shocking critical bug! OMG!

Just a curiosity, I am using an old version of Slackware, on mine:
Code:
man removepkg

AUTHOR

Patrick J. Volkerding <volkerdi@mhd1.moorhead.msus.edu>
I wonder if he still checks that email and maybe that's why he hasn't fixed the bug.

That bug has been fixed.

Code:
man removepkg

Probably a deliberate mistake, to see how many people actually RTF man pages.

And here I thought that Slackware was the *one* distro that paid attention to the little details. How could I have been sooooo wrong?!?
