Summary 0001286: positive increments *increase* the nice value in renice
Description > Positive increment values shall cause a lower nice value. Negative increment values
> may require appropriate privileges and shall cause a higher nice value.

No. positive increments increase the nice value (decrease the priority) and negative increments cause a lower nice value (higher priority).

The bug was introduced when the spec changed back from using *system scheduling priorities* to *nice value* between SUSv2 and SUSv3

Compare:

Desired Action Trim those 2 lines to only:

"Negative increment values may require appropriate privileges."

(no need to say that positive increments increase).
