Description of problem:
Please check the patch which I'll put later. Following description is for the patch.
- ".UC" is the macro for the UCB distribution. I think that logrotate was not born in UCB.
- In the configuration file, it is possible to specify multipul files.
- Normally tab stop length is 8 characters, so "+8n" is much better.
- ".pp" is not mandoc(man/mdoc) macro, so I guessed that ".PP" is appropriate.
The others are simple typo/copy&paste mistake.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

patch for the man page.
Created attachment 116925 [details]
new man page
Are you satisfied with this man page?
In this case, I work for JM project, which is the translation project for Japanese.
That project is not Fedora specific, so I cecked out original man page from
rhlinux.redhat.com:/usr/local/CVS. Therefore this (and #163366) report is not
for FC distribution. Because I could not choose appropriate one.
This new man page is including the description of some extra functionalities
which are provided by FC patch. This new one is fine for FC users, but it is not
correct for the original logrotate users.
My suggestion is that "Do as much of the development work as possible directly
in the *upstream* packages.", which is part of Fedora Project's Objectives. If
the all of patches are merged into original repository, more people will be made
