This is automatically generated email about markup problems in a man
page for which you appear to be responsible.  If you are not the right
person or list, please tell me so I can correct my database.

See http://catb.org/~esr/doclifter/bugs.html for details on how and
why these patches were generated.  Feel free to email me with any
questions.  Note: These patches do not change the modification date of
any manual page.  You may wish to do that by hand.

I apologize if this message seems spammy or impersonal. The volume of
markup bugs I am tracking is over five hundred - there is no real
alternative to generating bugmail from a database and template.

Problems with sudoers.5:
