Replace/update POSIX Compliance Guide

Reported by: Joel Sherrill Owned by: Chris Johns
Priority: normal Milestone: 5.1
Component: doc Version: 5
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Blocked By:


The POSIX Compliance Guide was never converted from texinfo. Beyond that, it is out of date and follows the outline of the printed version of the POSIX standard which no one sees anymore. This ticket proposes:

  1. new Sphinx document
  2. contents generated from POSIX API tracking spreadsheet (CSV)
  3. outline per .h file, not functional area
  4. use bullets, not tables so easier to format
