Summary 0001697: Consider replacing out-of-date with not up-to-date
Description In the specification of the make utility, the term up-to-date occurs 45 times, the (supposedly opposite) term out-of-date occurs 12 times. To make the specification conceptually simpler, it would suffice to use only the term up-to-date consistently throughout the whole specification.
Desired Action Reword the 12 places that use the term out-of-date to use the negated form of the corresponding up-to-date instead.

Alternatively, explicitly define that out-of-date means the exact opposite of up-to-date, and that there is no range of undefinedness between them.

In make rationale on P3131, L105687 after:
The HP-UX implementation of make treated it as out-of-date.
add a new sentence:
Note that up-to-date and out-of-date are antonyms.

In make future directions add a new paragraph after P3133, L105820.
A future version of this standard may require that a target with a prerequisite with an identical timestamp is considered out-of-date.
