Affected version:5.x-svn Platform:Linux


The lintian QA tool reported a number of spelling errors for the gmt 5.3.1 Debian package build:

  • occours → occurs
  • mutiple → multiple
  • postive → positive
  • ommited → omitted
  • Quiting → Quitting
  • verticies → vertices
  • exlusive → exclusive

If you'd like to catch these before the release, using the modified codespell used by GDAL is a good option then, see:
