Unfortunately no automated system is perfect (see some of my comments below).
 I'm all for an automated system that identifies potential misspellings, but
I'm wary of anything that attempts to automatically correct perceived errors,
or that can't be overruled.  In the end a human must make the final decision.

As many others have already said, this is not a typo.

The use of "a" or "an" depends on whether or not the O's sound is hard or
soft.  So although we say "an orange" we also say "a one-in-a-million chance".

Here "tpoic" is illustrating the typo that was being misdiagnosed.

"Sharable" is the North American spelling.  AFAIK git doesn't specify what
kind of English the documentation source files should use.  Perhaps one day
there'll be en_UK and en_US translations, and all the sources will be written
in Klingon...

Until that day, or until the git project starts to care a lot more about
English style, I think patches that translate spellings between English
variants are a bit of a waste of time.

Both "infeasible" and "unfeasible" are in common usage.  If you want to avoid
future patches going back and forth on this, try "not feasible".
