#rcj serialisation is misspelled, should be serialization.

That depends on where you live, of course. It is derived from a Latin
root, I think, so should have an 's'. At least, where I live.
Good point Dave, I did not think to look that one up online, my bad for trusting my spell checker and my locale. ;) Was unaware that that one is spelled two ways (darn British have to spell it differently, or is it those darn colonists don't know how to spell i.e. color colour)

Do manpages have a policy as regards spelling?
Not to my knowledge.
