NAME
     wizd -- automatically correct typographical errors in man pages

SYNOPSIS
     wizd

DESCRIPTION
     wizd automatically checks and corrects spelling errors, usage problems
     with mdoc(7) macros, and other typographical errors in man pages.

     wizd is invoked by any cvs(1) commit to a man page.

     wizd also performs periodic sanity checks on the distribution set lists.
     E-mail alerts will be triggered if the build installs files that are
     marked as obsolete and therefore get automatically removed.

SIGNALS
     wizd responds to the following signals:

     <wiz@NetBSD.org>

              errors in question may be specified in standard internet mail
              format.

     wizd additionally sometimes delivers the following signals to other com-
     mitter processes:

     SIGWIZD  An error was detected in a man page.
