Update of bug #54509 (project findutils):

                  Status:                    None => In Progress            
             Assigned to:                    None => berny                  


Follow-up Comment #1:

That sentence has recently been added to 'find.1', i.e., after the
release of v4.6.0; references:


The problem is that it only applies to the '+' syntax, not to
the ';' syntax of the -exec/-execdir/-ok/-okdir family.

The attached patch fixes the documentation.

CC-ing Kamil who authored the first version of that commit which
only added that sentence to the description of '-exec ... +';
The misleading part for the -execdir predicate was added by me
in his name in the same commit, sigh.

(file #44782)
