Summary 0001365: rm -v description implies only operands are reported
Description The changes from bug 0001154 to add rm -v were supposed to require that rm reports each file that it removes. However, the description of -v is:
After file has been removed, write a message to standard output indicating that it has been removed.
which implies that rm -rv only reports the removal of file operands and does not report the removal of files within a directory specified as an operand.

The changes at line 103806 correctly state that each removed file is reported.

Line 103858 in STDOUT also has two minor problems:
  • Use of "the file" is odd, as if rm only ever removes one file.
  • The phrase "being removed" implies that something could be written before the removal attempt is made, rather than (as per the other changes) only after successful removal.

Desired Action On page 3066 line 103824 section rm, change:
After file has been removed
to:
After each file has been removed

On page 3067 line 103858 section rm, change:
information about the file being removed
to:
information about each removed file
