Hi,

Attached are 3 patches to cryptsetup.8 you may or may not find
useful.  (Patches to be applied from within the man directory).

The first and second must be applied in order.

Patched against the latest svn readonly.

cryptsetup.8.sentences.patch1:
Sentence structure edits and clarification of what
effective revocation means.

cryptsetup.8.slots.patch2
New text explaining the "slot" and "key"
vocabulary.

cryptsetup.8.luksremovekey.patch3
Since the vocabulary (remove) used in
luksRemoveKey differs from that (kill)
used in luksKillSlot clarify that they
do the same thing.  (IMO, it would have been nice
if the operation names were "symmetric", say,
'luksRemoveKey' and 'luksRemoveSlot
because after glancing at the code it seems
they wind up calling the same function.  Oh well.)

Regards,
