I suggest that you organize the very long list sections (now more than 110) in the functions reference into distinct parts to help navigation and easier find related sections. I suggest the folowing order (tabulated format):

we are already working on that.
 [2002-05-12 12:17 UTC]
Erm... something messed up... fixed that...

Great idea... Another one is to list new extensions/functions somewhere, because it's hard to know when something new appears - I usually find a new extension by quickly looking through the list and try to see if something catches my attention.

We already have a file at

with groupings already accepted by the PHP documentation
guys (there were not too many opinions about it, but at
least no arguments against it). Are problems with this are
that we still need to work out how to make new chunks of
those <section>s which is not the default (see the ref
pages with <section>s), and how to control the TOCs
display [deepness] we get.. All these both in the DSSSL
sheets and in the XSL sheets. So there is still some
work to do.

Same as

We track this issue at the bug Jakub pointed to (this makes this bugreport bogus, not the content).

May be the same as
But THIS report is MUCH older than newer bug 24861 that caught this one.

So THIS bug 17164 was not bogous: close it if you want, because the solution proposed in Bug 24861 is a good reply to this bug report. But get sure to make the job in newer bug 24861...

 [2004-08-09 13:45 UTC]
And is even older than this :-).
 [2004-08-09 14:02 UTC]
As I have said it is not the content which makes this bogus, but it is being a duplicate (the bogus status is used for duplicates). What do we choose from the duplicates is our freedom. There were three bugs for this stuff. I have choosen the latest one to track the progress there, since none of the bugs really added any value to the discussion (we already have a grouping in place, just the infrastructure is not ready yet to handle it).
