Lintian ReportsBETA

I typo-in-manual-page

Lintian found a spelling error in a manual page. Lintian has a list of common misspellings that it looks for. It does not have a dictionary like a spelling checker does.

If the string containing the spelling error is translated with the help of gettext (with the help of po4a, for example) or a similar tool, please fix the error in the translations as well as the English text to avoid making the translations fuzzy. With gettext, for example, this means you should also fix the spelling mistake in the corresponding msgids in the *.po files.

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.114.163. That is the most recent version we know about.

We use semantic versions. The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the 2.111.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit ce6249d. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check documentation/manual.
