Thanks for the report.
I did a little searching and it seems "cumulate" is actually a real
verb, though I agree the verb "accumulate" is much more widely used
(and also seems closer the computer term "accumulator").
It seems current gettext-0.18.1.1 still uses "cumulate"
so I will ask the upstream maintainers about it, and see
what they say. I don't we will fix this for RHEL5 though,
so I am moving your report over to Fedora, so that it might
get into a future RHEL release. :)
"Cumulate" isn't a verb we'd use in British English, as you mentioned man page readers should be familiar with accumlate though. Thanks for redirecting this to the right place.
