a problem with man useradd

Hi, all,

I am using Fedora 7. Today I was looking at the man page of the command useradd. I can sense there is some wrong with the content. It says "Values between 0 and 999 are typically reserved for system accounts." when I read the option -u. I think it should be values between 0 and 499. can we ask the developers to be careful when they wrote the man content, or to clean up the out of date stuffs in time?

Yes you can ask the developers to do that..... so are you going to?
They don't necessarily read fedoraforum.org, a documentation
bug report on https://bugzilla.redhat.com/ would get to them.
