Default Man Page Bug?

Regarding the sinntp package.

>From man page, nntp-pull:

---begin quoted text---

EXAMPLES
nntp-pull --server=news.example.org --limit=50
?comp.os.linux>os-linux?

Fetches at most the 50 newest articles from the newsgroup
comp.os.linux located on news.example.org server and appends them to
the os-linux mailbox file.

---end quoted text---

Should that not read "?comp.os.linux>>os-linux?" (two >'s) to append to
rather than overwrite a news file?

Kind Regards,
Freeman

Just test it and see how it behaves. If the command replaces the file,
you better open a bug report.
