I think this was also posted as a patch on the patch tracker. I applied it already.

find attached a patch by Bjarni Ingi Gislason for find.1. submitted to the Debian bts in <http://bugs.debian.org/726870>.

It applies cleanly against git HEAD.

From "groff -b -ww -mandoc -z":

/home/bg/opt/share/groff/1.22.2/tmac/an-old.tmac:382: backtrace: macro `B'
<groff: find.1>:1842: warning: escape character ignored before `;'

Inputfile is /var/tmp/findutils-4.5.12/find/find.1
Debian bug #661086 fixed (missing 'you')

Changes (besides the warning):

Word 'filsystem' changed to 'filesystem'

A full stop (.) that starts or ends a string and is a part of it,
protected with \&

Space between some sentences reduced or increased. Better is to begin
each sentence on a new line

Word 'signifiy' changed to 'signify'

Word 'immeidately' changed to 'immediately'
