Follow-up Comment #2, patch #3730 (project findutils):

I'm refreshing myself on the work I had done in February. I recall a patch
related to some other fixes but not one for reconciling the differences
between the manual and man pages.

Looking quickly over my audit notes, the only glaring differences between the
documentation formats are:

- The "Standards Coformance" section found only in find.1
- Some examples in the "Examples" section found only in find.1
- The "Examples" section used only in xargs.1
- The note, "the ouptut of locate -S is different for the GNU and BSD
implementations of locate.", is only locate.1

In my perusal I've found some related and unrelated typos in the manual. I'll
send them, shortly.
