The field 'Reference_priv' is also available in mysql.host and mysql.db and not only in mysql.user as listed in the table description of "4.2.6. How the Privilege System Works".
It is there since at least 3.23.52

How to repeat:

Suggested fix:
Add field to table description

The name is of course References_priv (forgot the 's'). Sorry for that!

Thank you for your bug report. This issue has been addressed in the
documentation. The updated documentation will appear on our website
shortly, and will be included in the next release of the relevant

You're quite right. The manual has been updated now.
Of course, this has no practical significance, because
the privilege currently is unused, anyway. :-) But the
manual should reflect reality. Thanks for your report.
