I hope someone gets fired...oh, wait.

So, I'm updating my Gentoo config files with etc-update. I notice there have been seven changes to /etc/rc.conf since last I updated. Three of those are single-word changes to the comments: "CONSOLETRANSLATION" has been changed to "CONSOLETRANSALTION", "enough" to "enouth", and "enlightenment" to "enligtenment".

I stare at the diff for a while just to make sure I don't have it backwards. These aren't just typos. Some Gentoo developer actually went in and changed the right spellings to the wrong ones, presumably because they thought the right spellings were wrong.

Of course, this kind of thing would never happen with the code itself.
