Bug Description

Binary package hint: ureadahead

Two problems on the manpage:

(1) the word "content" in the second sentence explaining the --daemon option should read "contend". So the sentence becomes "This is ignored when reading on rotational hard drives, since it's important for performance reasons not to contend with other processes for I/O.".

(2) the link in the BUGS section (https://launchpad.net/ureadahead/+bugs) yields "ureadahead does not use Launchpad for bug tracking. ".

Confirming the typo.

Either the bug-reporting link seems ok and ureadahead on launchpad needs some configuration step, or the developers don't intend to use an upstream split and the URL should be something like https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ureadahead ?
