Follow-up Comment #7, bug #57025 (project findutils):

thanks for the suggestions.

1st: ".BI" doesn't work well.  And IMO it bloats that sentence
with the "(...)" which disturbs the easy reading.
I played a bit with something like this:

.IP "\-amin \fI-n\fR|\fI+n\fR|\fIn\fR"

which compiles as

-amin -n|+n|n

i.e., leaving the explaining sentence as in my previous proposal,
and adding the alternatives more prominently to the option item itself.
I'm not sure this is valid syntax though.

2nd: hmm, rounding is indeed a little trap for the user.  But I think
repeating a description in all places (-ctime, -mtime, -atime) is not
ideal either.  One place - and a reference to it in the other option's
descriptions - is enough.

3rd: I agree, that part of the Texinfo manual should stay/get in sync with the
man page.
