Per bug #63827, pdfmark will be departing the groff tree; comment #2 here points to its new home.

Thanks for flagging these typos; I committed https://osdn.net/users/keith/pf/groff-pdfmark/scm/commits/c0904b57e9b63b369e627d45a067ce97b289d777 to my master repo, (and this is as far as I will pursue the matter).

I am rejecting any suggestion that "co-ordinate" is misspelled; it is completely correct, according to my 1960's UK grammar school education, and confirmed by my 1979 printing of the 6th edition of the Concise Oxford Dictionary of English.

Furthermore, I would point out that the "connot" reference, although misspelled, is actually correct in the ChangeLog context in which it appears, and the misspelled "enviroment" reference is not my typo.  In any case, since I no longer maintain a free-standing ChangeLog file, (having deprecated it in favour of the mercurial commit log), I will be taking no associated corrective action.

I'm rescoping this ticket to just its pdfmark components and reassigning to Keith Marshall for him to deal with at his discretion.

Bjarni, please file another ticket just for the mom items.

The chem, glilypond, hdtbl, and mm items I have already redrawn within the scope of bug #63589.

Finally, I'm rejecting one part of this report.

rfc1345/rfc1345.tmac:310: LAMDA ==> LAMBDA
rfc1345/rfc1345.tmac:341: LAMDA ==> LAMBDA

"LAMDA" is actually how Unicode spells these character names.

See https://superuser.com/questions/1388771/why-is-%CE%BB-called-lamda-instead-of-lambda-in-unicode for background.
