Thank you for the bug report. However, are you looking at the latest version
of the manual?

Or even "dependencies" ;=)

Section 1 at https://www.cvshome.org/docs/manual/cvs-1.11.18/cvs_1.html#SEC3
shows the correct spelling.

https://www.cvshome.org/docs/manual/cvs-1.11.18/cvs_3.html#SEC41 shows the
correct spelling.

Section 10 at
https://www.cvshome.org/docs/manual/cvs-1.11.18/cvs_10.html#SEC82 shows the
correct spelling.

"A few lines below" is pretty vague. Section 10.6.2 is, in my opinion, more
than "a few lines" after the introduction to 10.

In any case, https://www.cvshome.org/docs/manual/cvs-1.11.18/cvs_10#SEC90
shows the correct spelling.

https://www.cvshome.org/docs/manual/cvs-1.11.18/cvs_10#SEC91 again shows the
correct spelling.

After a bit of searching, I realized you meant "Common" command options.
Again, https://www.cvshome.org/docs/manual/cvs-1.11.18/cvs_16.html#SEC117
shows the correct spelling.

If the spelling mistakes you've found are in different sections of the
manual, please provide more precise locations of the error.
