Description of problem:
Spelling fixes for i2cdetect(8)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. man 8 i2cdetect
Actual results / Expected results / Additional info:
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.
Thanks for your time to report, but neither rhel >= 5 nor feroda is already fixed.
$ grep busses i2cdetect.8
should correspond to one of the busses listed by \fIi2cdetect -l\fR.
Output a list of installed busses.
For rhel6 and all fedoras
$ find -name 'i2c*'
There is no such a file. Hence it's fixed.

This is not correct, i2cdetect is still around, but it is part of i2c-tools now, re-opening and changing component.
Note, not sure of the patch is correct, see:
Not sure, busses just looks wrong to my UK English brain (and firefox's spell checker doesn't like it either).
Can't think of any other nouns ending in s that change to "ses" in the plural form... http://www.theenglishspace.com/spelling/plurals-ending-s.html and others suggest it's always add "es".
On the other hand /usr/share/dict/words has busses but it also has buss which is a singular kiss according to the yahoo article linked to above.
Do what you think is best or toss a coin :-)
"busses" is common in electrical engineering jargon.
I'm an EE, it's "buses" here :-(
