Hi Michael!

Justin Pryzby <[email protected]> sent in another
patch for manpages (select_tut(2)).  I've updated ip(7).  Please
apply them as well.

Note: He would place a comma between "socket it", you probably know
better whether a comma needs to be used or not since you're a native
English speaker.
