Mon 21 Mar 2016 04:14:17 AM UTC, original submission:

The example from the man page (v4.6.0, may be in earlier ones as well)

find repo/ -exec test -d {}/.svn \; -or \
-exec test -d {}/.git \; -or -exec test -d {}/CVS \; \
-print -prune

Should be

find repo/ \( -exec test -d {}/.svn \; -or \
-exec test -d {}/.git \; -or -exec test -d {}/CVS \; \) \
-print -prune

Otherwise the -print and -prune only pertain to the last -exec test -d {}/CVS \;
