man-pages-3.35 is released

I've released man-pages-3.35. For the moment, the various pieces of the release remain at different locations than usual. The browsable online pages can be found on man7.org; the release tarball is available here on kernel.org.

A git repository for man-pages can be found on github kernel.org.

The most notable changes in man-pages-3.35 are as follows:

  • A new recvmmsg(2) page (written by Andi Kleen and me) documents the recvmmsg() system call that was added to Linux back in version 2.6.32.
  • A new setns(2) page (written by Eric Biederman) documents the setns() system call that was added in Linux 3.0.
  • Various global edits to improve the consistency of terminology used in the man pages.

Your tarball download link, as well as your archive is non-existent.

Is it only available via GIT now?

I'm learning to build Linux from sources, and the instructions I'm following (Linuxfromscratch.org) point me to your tarball.

Thanks to google, I believe I found a mirror over at http://fossies.org/linux/misc/man-pages-3.35.tar.gz/ - however, I'd like to advise you of the broken links, both here and on man7.org.

It looks like your downloads directory link has been cleaned out.

For now, use http://man7.org/linux/download/man-pages/

That page does not exist! Where can I download the files?
