Subject: [PATCH] doc: bitbake-user-manual: grammar fix for the number of "metadata"
Date: Thu, 29 Jul 2021 15:01:33 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

"metadata" is used both as singular and as plural.
The first change fixes a case in which the verbs have a singular conjugation
but articles that indicate a plural case.

The second change is for consistency with the first one inside
the same paragraph.
