Description of problem:
Precedence is "precendence" and
prespecified is "preprecified" in the
ping(8) manpage (/usr/share/man/man8/ping.8.gz).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. log in
2. man ping
3. search for "Precendence" or "prepreci-fied"
Actual Results: "precendence"
Expected Results: "precedence"
I hope that covers it.
Diff of the output (sorry, didn't think to do this for the nroff until I had
already done this):

I found one more small problem.
In the description for -M, "dont" is used instead of "don't".
Except of the "dont" case all bugs have been fixed upstream and have been

I'll send out the other typo to the upstream maintainer.
