Bash Version: 5.0
Patch Level: 17
Release Status: release

         I've already submited a PR at https://github.com/gitGNU/gnu_bash/pulls but I'm not sure that's the right place. Therefore I'm submitting this bug report to ensure it gets looked at (there are some old pull requests from 2021 at that github location).  This is for a simple doc addition to the wait manpage, which adds the text:

            When bash is waiting for an asynchronous command via the wait builtin,              the reception of a signal for which a trap has been set will cause              the wait builtin to return immediately with an exit status greater
             than 128, immediately after which the trap is executed.

taken directly from the SIGNALS area of the bash man page. I don't see why this should be omitted from the wait documentation. If it's undesirable to copy this text here, perhaps at least the wait doc could direct users to read the SIGNALS section.


            Incorporate the doc change.
