Summary 0001542: A certain example for puts, fputs, time, localtime, and localtime_r isn't consistent between them all
Description This is a very minor issue:
In some examples in the standard, the following text is used
"There are %d minutes to the event.\n"
while in other (often otherwise identical) examples, the following text is used
"There are still %d minutes to the event.\n"

It's easy to grep the standard for these instances, but they appear on:
https://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/9699919799/functions/puts.html [^]
https://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/9699919799/functions/fputs.html [^]
https://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/9699919799/functions/localtime.html [^]
https://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/9699919799/functions/localtime_r.html [^]
https://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/9699919799/functions/time.html [^]

They could be changed for consistency.
Desired Action Simply for consistency in these examples, change all instances of
"There are %d minutes to the event.\n"
to
"There are still %d minutes to the event.\n"

This was discussed during the 2022-02-17 conference call. Each of the examples cited show output that is consistent with the format strings given. (So there is no bug here.)

Half of those present wanted to reject this request; the other half thought we could remove "still" from the place(s) where it appears (rather than add "still" to the place(s) where it does not appear.

We decided keep this open and defer it to a time when we have nothing else to do.
