Reword sentences that contain psuedo-English "resp."
As you likely know, Arch Linux is in the process of moving to systemd. So I was reading through the various systemd docs and quickly became baffled by this new abbreviation "resp.", which I've never seen before in my English-mother-tongue life. Some quick Googling turned up a reference: <http://www.transblawg.eu/index.php?/archives/870-Resp.-and-other-non-existent-English-wordsNicht-existente-englische-Woerter.html> I guess it's a literal translation of the German "Beziehungsweise", but English doesn't work the same way. The word "respectively" is used exclusively to provide an ordering connection between two lists. E.g. "the prefixes k, M, and G refer to kilo-, mega-, and giga-, respectively." It is also never abbreviated to "resp." So the sentence "Sets the default output resp. error output for all services and sockets" makes no sense to a natural English speaker. This patch removes all instances of "resp." in the man pages and replaces them with sentences which are much more clear and, hopefully, grammatically valid. In almost all instances, it was simply replacing "resp." with "or," which the original author (Lennart?) could probably just do in the future. The only other instances of "resp." are in the src/ subtree, which I don't feel privileged to correct. Signed-off-by: Andrew Eikum <firstname.lastname@example.org>
