Bug Description

In man page of "find" (man find), second paragraph in section DESCRIPTION, I see:

"[...] if you are using it to seach directories [...]"

*seach* should obviously be "search".

I'm using Ubuntu-7.10 (Gutsy)

findutils has been merged in intrepid. The debdiff needs to be updated. Once updated, resubscribe ubuntu-main-sponsors.

Thanks for you new debdiff.

There are two issues with your diff:
 * could you reference the LP bug number in your changelog entry ?
 * could target intrepid instead of hardy in your changelog entry ?

Please attach an updated debdiff and re-subscribed ubuntu-main-sponsors.
