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.
