Bug Description

http://people.canonical.com/~dholbach/packaging-guide/html/getting-set-up.html#install-basic-packaging-software lists apt-cache as being installed by the command above it. However, apt-cache is already installed since it is a part of apt. So it really isn't provided by 'sudo apt-get install gnupg pbuilder ubuntu-dev-tools bzr-builddeb apt-file'. While apt-cache is a useful command its wrong to list it there.

Quick question, should i have a separate branch for each bug, so this one would be lp:~jjesse/bug792495 or something like that or should I just push to the lp:~jjesse/ubuntu-packaging-guide that I did for the last bug? I'm willing to fix typos if they are accurate, just don't know enough about packaging (yet?) to more accurately fix things

Hi Jonathan,

We usually try to use one branch per bug, but if you want to collect a
number of small related fixes in one branch, you could use some thing like:

lp:~jjesse/ubuntu-packaging-guide/typo-fixes

Thanks!

let me know if there are other typos that need to be fixed and I'll take a look at them.
