I get the same result result from both 2.7.4 and 2.8.0-pre1-1578-gb1fb19c

Just looking at the buildbot.linuxcnc.org and I see the lucid docs are still being built... dunno if the on line documents are updated or now but what the heck I'll see if the fix gets built. In any case the installed documents will not be updated because there is no bug fix releases for older versions of LinuxCNC so they will still be wrong.

Even my Probotix machine came with a PC and the Ubuntu 10.04 LinuxCNC 2.5 installed and I've been redesigning the AXIS interface to my liking which is how I came across this topic. I imagine I'm not the only one still using an older version but if mistakes like this are not seen as urgent then this topic here should suffice as notice of the error I guess.
LinuxCNC does not advertise, only Mach advertises.
I have Ubuntu 10.04 on 2 machines... however once an older release is no longer supported no more bug fix releases come out so fixing the documentation for something as old as 10.04 is a waste of my time as you could only get the update if you are using the buildbot version which seems to still being built.
The best way to change things is to join the team and do a PR and submit your change. Again I don't know enough about how a PR works with older versions.
