Hello, I'm Yuichi SATO.

I wrote two topics about manuals of sudo.

[1] typo in sudoers.5

I feel I found a typo of sudoers.5 in sudo-1.6.3p5.
I think it's better to make a patch for sudoers.pod,
and send a following patch. 
It is a patch for sudoers.pod Rev.1.43.

[2] translation of man pages into Japanese

I'm also a member of JM Project (Japanese Manual Project).
In this project, we have translated man pages of 
sudo-1.6.3p5 (sudoers.5, sudo.8, visudo.8) into Japanese,
and want to distribute these man pages 
at our site (http://www.linux.or.jp/JM/).

About these tranlated pages, I have following questions:
(1) Is it OK to distribute translated man pages 
   under BSD Licence like other source codes ?
(2) Can we include "Japanese version's Copyright" 
   into these translated pages ?

If some knows, please notice me.

Thanks you.
