Subject: [PATCH v2 3/5] doc: remove unnecessary rm instances
Date: Fri, 14 May 2021 06:56:29 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210514115631.503276-4-felipe.contreras@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210514115631.503276-1-felipe.contreras@gmail.com>

Commits 50cff52f1a (When generating manpages, delete outdated targets
first., 2007-08-02) and f9286765b2 (Documentation/Makefile: remove
cmd-list.made before redirecting to it., 2007-08-06) created these rm
instances for a very rare corner-case: building as root by mistake.

It's odd to have workarounds here, but nowhere else in the Makefile--
which already fails in this stuation, starting from
Documentation/technical/.

We gain nothing but complexity, so let's remove them.
