(cherry picked from commit 10cd65878c741d2a22a1f2c36c54fcad4e516f72)
2019-04-11 Noam Postavsky <>

Fix typo in a doc string
* lisp/autorevert.el (global-auto-revert-mode): Fix a typo.
2019-03-20 Paul Eggert <>
Say which regexp ranges should be avoided
* doc/lispref/searching.texi (Regexp Special): Say that
regular expressions like "[a-m-z]" and "[[:alpha:]-~]" should
be avoided, for the same reason that regular expressions like
"+" and "*" should be avoided: POSIX says their behavior is
undefined, and they are confusing anyway. Also, explain
better what happens when the bound of a range is a raw 8-bit
byte; the old explanation appears to have been obsolete
anyway. Finally, say that ranges like "[\u00FF-\xFF]" that
mix non-ASCII characters and raw 8-bit bytes should be
avoided, since it’s not clear what they should mean.
