<h1>Downloading <em>man-pages</em></h1>
<h2>Tarballs</h2>

You can download the latest <em>man-pages</em> tarball
<a href="https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/docs/man-pages/">here</a>;
older tarballs can be found
<a href="https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/docs/man-pages/Archive/">here</a>.
The tarballs for the <em>man-pages-1.*</em> releases can be found

<h2>Git</h2>
<p>
Using
<a href="https://git-scm.com/">Git</a>,
you can obtain the very latest version of <em>man-pages</em>
from the canonical git repository on kernel.org
using the following command:
</p>
<!--
$ <strong>git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/docs/man-pages/man-pages</strong>
-->
<pre class="shell">$ <strong>git clone https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/docs/man-pages/man-pages</strong>
</pre>
<p>
You can see what's recently been pushed to kernel.org via CGit:
<a href="https://git.kernel.org/?p=docs/man-pages/man-pages.git">https://git.kernel.org/?p=docs/man-pages/man-pages.git</a>.
</p>
<!--
$ <strong>git clone https://github.com/mkerrisk/man-pages</strong>
-->
<p>
Since the 2011 kernel.org outage,
there is also a secondary Git repository at
<a href="https://github.com/mkerrisk/man-pages">https://github.com/mkerrisk/man-pages</a>.
(Please don't send GitHub pull requests or report issues
via the GitHub issue tracker.
