Abstract: In this paper we shall prove that the combination of the general distribution property and the functional equation for the Lipschitz-Lerch transcendent capture the whole spectrum of deeper results on the relations between the values at rational arguments of functions of a class of zeta-functions. By Theorem 1 and its corollaries, we can cover all the previous results in a rather simple and lucid way. By considering the limiting cases, we can also deduce new striking identities for Milnor's gamma functions, among which is the Gauss second formula for the digamma function.
