GPGME documentation for gpgme_op_decrypt_ext return codes unclear

Hi GnuPG folks--

the GPGME documentation for gpgme_op_decrypt_ext() says:

     The function returns the error codes as described for
     ‘gpgme_op_decrypt’ respective ‘gpgme_op_encrypt’.

It is unclear to me what "respective ‘gpgme_op_encrypt’" means here.

Can someone help me understand it?  I'd be happy to update the docs to
make them clearer if i understood what they were trying to say.  Or, is
this trailing clause extra and it could just be dropped?  Dropping it
makes the explanation simpler, for sure.
