Description Joseph Kotran 2000-12-22 16:33:27 EST

	Please note that I have noticed several errors in the man page for rpm. 
The error is present on every line that ends in a hypenated word.  In each
case the hyphen is preceeded by a captial A.  Please consider this example:

rpm is a powerful package manager, which can be used  to
build, install, query, verify, update, and uninstall indiA-
vidual software packages.  A package consists of an
archive of files, and package informatio, including name,
version, and description.

				Best regards,

				Joe Kotran

This is a problem with man and/or groff, not rpm. Changing component to groff.

This seems to be ok with the newest groff rpm.
