Description of problem:
Spelling mistake in selinux(8) manpage
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. man 8 selinux
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.
Found a few other issues with the selinux man pages (this is on Fedora 16):
1. man context_type_set
The context_*_set functions are shown returning "char *", but the include file selinux/context.h shows they have an "int" return type, and the man page mentions 0 for success, -1 for failure.
Further, the spacing around the arguments in the synopsis is lousy.
2. man setcon
"decompose your applicaiton and use" should be "decompose your application and use". (Note "applicaiton" -> "application").
Someone with more tuits could probably run a spell checker over all the man pages, given the number of trivial "typing too fast" typos that have shown up.
Fixed in libselinux-2.1.8-6.fc17
Marked fixed 2011-12-20
