Bug Description


Please see the file contents. The repository codes are talking about precise when they should be talking about saucy.

Do the desktop help docs not have any automatic entity substitution? In the serverguide all distro specific edits are handled automatically, so there is no need to edit them for each cycle.

If not then, in my option it makes sense to leave it at least as an LTS name, and add some text saying to make the entry as required for your specific distro.

I looked through the files and don't see a script that does entity substitution. From what I can see, not every reference to an outdated release is inside of a specific kind of entity, and not all uses of the release names have anything to do with the releases (for instance, one could use the word "precise" or "Precise" when referring to aiming at something with the mouse, and it would have nothing to do with the Precise release).

Since that means updating release references probably have to be done manually, I wrote a script. It checks for the names of all releases and displays a list of page names for each one that it finds. The array it uses contains each release name in lower case and also in upper and lower case. This way it won't miss any, and you'll know exactly what to search for inside each file when updating them.

I haven't pushed it onto the server because I don't know whether it would be welcome. You can push it if it is, or let me know and I'll do it. (:

The script should be attached to this comment.

Wow, thanks for the script! This is really nice.

Running the script, there aren't many pages with the release names:

john@sparrow:~/ubuntu-docs/ubuntu-help/C$ ~/

== These pages contain Precise ==

== These pages contain precise ==

== These pages contain quantal ==

But I will check 'em out.

I'm glad you like it. Let me know if I should push it onto the server to add to the others that are already there. I can fix those few pages before Thursday's freeze - I figured I'd leave them that way so you could see what the script does. Otherwise you'd have had to edit it and add to the array to get it to give you results. (:

Thanks for your work on this one. Yes, you should push your script.

You're welcome, and it's pushed. (:
