Missed a utility in previous rev.

I've found a few typos.

150 ↗(On Diff #20899)


164 ↗(On Diff #20899)

(American english)

278 ↗(On Diff #20899)


279 ↗(On Diff #20899)

I don't understand this sentence. Maybe s/effects/affects/ ?

353 ↗(On Diff #20899)

I think the "be" can be removed here.

220 ↗(On Diff #20899)


sevan edited edge metadata.

Addressed the issues highlighted in the previous revision.
Reworded the statement in mount_fusefs.8 so perhaps it's better understood? as well switched from a noun (effect) to a verb (affect). This was in the manual already but igor suggested break up the sentence.

bcr edited edge metadata.

Approved. Make sure to reference all PRs you might have already opened for the individual man page.
