Bug Description

Since 17.10 is artful, it seems to be sorted before older releases, giving this slightly jarring output:

 ~ w3m -dump 'http://manpages.ubuntu.com/cgi-bin/search.py?q=umake'
Ubuntu manuals

[ ] go

┏━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━┓
┃ artful precise trusty xenial zesty ┃
┃ 17.10 12.04 14.04 16.04 17.04 Section Description ┃
┃ LTS LTS LTS ┃
┃ ┃
┃ umake . . umake umake (1) - Executable programs or shell ┃
┃ (1) (1) (1) commands ┃

The actual manpage doesn't list 17.10. The top section lists:

12.04 LTS
14.04 LTS
15.10
16.04 LTS
16.10
17.04
