Description Aurelien Gouny 2010-06-08 21:50:13 EDT
Description of problem:
It looks like there might be a typo in the man page, in the description section:

The #includedir directive can be used to create a *sudo.d* directory that the system package manager can drop sudoers rules into as part of package installation. For example, given:
      #includedir /etc/sudoers.d

sudo will read each file in /etc/sudoers.d, skipping file names that end in ~ or contain a . character to avoid causing problems with package manager or editor temporary/backup files.

In the first sentence, shouldn't sudo.d be sudoers.d to match the example ?
