In July I sent in some typo fixes but it halted in a discussion on UK
vs. US English and so forth ($gmane/231331). There were some actual typo
fixes in there though (in addition to the "opinionated typo fixes").

Powering up my old laptop for the first time in months I noticed that I
had them idling in a branch, and that incidentally none of them has been
fixed. Hopefully I've managed to seperate the genuine typo fixes from
the rest.
