[lsb-discuss] stat(), lstat() and fstat()

That would be an improvement, but it still leaves open what LSB version it became included as "source only". It would seem clearer if it said something like "Included since 1.0 (source only)".

It seems that my previous reply didn't go to the list - so no, there is
no any special meaning for Icomment.

And concerning stat & co in Navigator (also discussed in irc) - you can
make things look even more clear if you update cache tables. This can be
done by 'make cache', but in this particular case it will be faster to
simply add records to the cache_IntStatus, e.g.:

INSERT INTO cache_IntStatus
VALUES('stat','libc',1,0,'Included','Included since 1.0');

This will change status displayed in Navigator from 'Never been in LSB'
to 'Source Only'.
