Follow-up Comment #12, bug #57025 (project findutils):

Thanks for the fast response, and sorry for my very slow reaction.

Yes, I have seen that sentence.

However the problem I have is that this clarification text is, for most
options, quite far away from the specification of the option.

I had a ticket originally telling that despite my experience with find, I was
frequently bitten by the fact that say -size 1M is only for files that are
exactly 1M. And hence was proposing that the manpage was updated in some way.

The proposal in comment #7 is exactly the clarification needed I think: -amin

At least for me, and also combined with the text now added ("less than, more
than or exactly"), this would be really great.
