Follow-up Comment #6, bug #57025 (project findutils):

I agree that the patch you proposed is a substantial improvement.

Do you think it is worthwhile to make things even more explicit?  For example,

File was last accessed less than (
.BI \-amin -n
), more than (
.BI \-amin -n
) or exactly (
.BI \-amin n
) minutes ago.  

(Caveat: I did not check that .BI actually works)

Secondly, for tests where comparisons are made after rounding, perhaps we
should point that out, too.

Thirdly, does the Texinfo documentation need to be updated too?
