As discussed on the list already, the \- change is not one I think we should do.   I don't think that other troff variants are necessarily going to support \[en] or \(en.

The changes I would have liked to apply would be the spacing changes, the \& change and the typo fix.   But I won't apply a patch from an unidentified contributor.  

Given this, I'm marking the bug as "Wont Fix" since this most closely reflects what's happened.

I'll treat this anonymous bug report as a report of the typo.   Thanks for letting me know.  I've fixed the typo.

  \- in the name of an option changed to - (hyphen)

  Space between sentences is two word spaces.  Better is to start each
sentence on a new line as the file contains formatting commands

  Word "ouptut" changed to 'output'

  A full stop (.). that begins or ends a string, protected with \&

  \- changed to \[en] if it means a range (dash)

  - changed to \- if it means an option
