Subject: Typo in man-page: SIGNAL(7)

In the URL:

there is the following duplication typo at the end of the paragraph: "it 
was it was" (marked in capital letters, below)

Signal mask and pending signals
A signal may be blocked, which means that it will not be delivered until 
it is later unblocked. Between the time when it is generated and when it 
is delivered a signal is said to be pending. Each thread in a process 
has an independent signal mask, which indicates the set of signals that 
the thread is currently blocking. A thread can manipulate its signal 
mask using pthread_sigmask(3). In a traditional single-threaded 
application, sigprocmask(2) can be used to manipulate the signal mask. A 
child created via fork(2) inherits a copy of its parent's signal mask; 
the signal mask is preserved across execve(2). A signal may be 
process-directed or thread-directed. A process- directed signal is one 
that is targeted at (and thus pending for) the process as a whole. A 
signal may be process-directed because it was generated by the kernel 
for reasons other than a hardware exception, or because it was sent 
using kill(2) or sigqueue(3). A thread- directed signal is one that is 
targeted at a specific thread. A signal may be thread-directed because 
it was generated as a consequence of executing a specific 
machine-language instruction that triggered a hardware exception (e.g., 
SIGSEGV for an invalid memory access, or SIGFPE for a math error), or 
because IT WAS IT WAS targeted at a specific thread using interfaces 
such as tgkill(2) or pthread_kill(3).

Thanks for the great work.
