Moving this bug to Fedora as agreed with the reporter. I apologize if the manpage typo/grammar error was already fixed in version included in the Fedora, if that's the case, feel free to close the bug.

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

Hello John,

     Thanks for the patch, I am going to apply it. 
However, have you ever tried to submit the patch to upstream? 


I am updating the dnsmasq to a newer version (2.58) in Fedora and noticed that they still have this typo in upstream. 

Comment 5 Douglas Schilling Landgraf 2011-08-28 14:22:29 EDT

Sent the patch to upstream for review before include to the package:

Comment 6 Michal Hlavinka 2011-08-29 03:06:47 EDT
Changing component back to dnsmasq (it's known bugzilla bug)
Comment 7 John Bradshaw 2011-08-29 18:40:42 EDT
Hi Douglas,
Wasn't aware of the upstream, thanks for submitting it there.
Comment 8 Douglas Schilling Landgraf 2012-04-20 08:51:00 EDT
Hi John, 

    As the dnsmasq author shared, your patch is available in the version 2.59. Fedora currently ships 2.59 version, so I am closing this bz for now.

Feel free to re-open it in case of any problem.
