Package: lintian
Version: 2.5.89
Severity: normal

Hi all,

I'm packaging libdate-manip-perl. Lintian reports a spelling error for
this sentence:

  The preferred way is to locate the time zone in some system file, or
  using some system command...

I've patched it to replace "some system file" by "some system files" and
"some system command" by "some system commands" which seems to be really
spelling errors. But Lintian warns always since it doesn't take care of
the next word.

Note: I'm not English native and may have reported a bad error. If so,
please excuse me and close this issue.
