A new man-pages-overrides package is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux

The man-pages-overrides package contains a collection of manual ("man") pages to
complement other packages or update those contained therein.

This enhancement update adds the man-pages-overrides package to Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5. (BZ#558469)

* A typo in the crontab(1) manual page has been fixed. (BZ#448544)

* A reference to the nonexistent pacct(5) manual page in the sa(8) manual page
has been removed. (BZ#464865)

* Missing pnmtojbig(1) and pcdovtoppm(1) manual pages have been added.
(BZ#496036)

* The mount(8) man page now contains missing information about the ext4 and XFS
file systems. (BZ#536899)

* The sh(1) man page now contains fixed information about the default value of
the PATH variable. (BZ#576795)

* The expect(1) man page formatting issue has been fixed. (BZ#633696)

* The ypserv(8), rpc.yppasswdd(8) and rpc.ypxfrd(8) manual pages now contain
information about the possibility of setting internal options. (BZ#656438)

* A typo in the cron(8) manual page has been fixed. (BZ#658860)

* The route(8) manual page now includes an explicit description of the "mss M"
option. (BZ#671321)

* The unsupported keyword "order" has been removed from the host.conf(5) manual
page. (BZ#698153)

* The path to the cifs.upcall program has been corrected in the cifs.upcall(8)
manual page, and the nounix option description has been added to the
mount.cifs(8) manual page. (BZ#621926)

* The ldap.conf(5) manual page has been modified in order to prefer usage of the
TLS_CACERT option instead of the TLS_CACERTDIR option to specify Certificate
Authorities. (BZ#649048)
