Thanks for the report, John.
Some of those were still present in the current upstream version; they should be fixed in 2.6.36.

Should I always give diffs using the --git option? Found a few other typos in other man pages so would like to make this as easy as possible for the maintainers next time.
Anything else I should include?

It's all about the maintainer's choice; I suppose unified diff is usually the preferred option, though.
I'm looking forward to more patches from you :) Also, for your information, the changes have been accepted upstream.
Started adding diff -u patches to my other reports :)
Thanks for the tutorial as well as sorting this ticket.
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.
Fixed upstream, see comments 1 and 3.
Available in iproute-2.6.37-1.fc15 and newer.
