Subject: [PATCH 05/12] Manual pages: sfdisk.8: Use less aggressive indenting
Date: Fri, 24 Jul 2020 12:06:11 +0200
Message-ID: <20200724100618.584918-5-mtk.manpages@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200724100618.584918-1-mtk.manpages@gmail.com>

The page currently uses rather aggressive indenting, which doesn't
really improve readability, but does have cause ugly line filling.
