From: G. Branden Robinson
Subject: [groff] 02/03: **/*.man: Fix "e.g." style nit.
Date: Tue, 7 Apr 2020 18:54:21 -0400 (EDT)

gbranden pushed a commit to branch master
in repository groff.

commit 501d76100495a36320b465932c42b06eef9550c1
Author: G. Branden Robinson <address@hidden>
AuthorDate: Wed Apr 8 07:51:24 2020 +1000

    **/*.man: Fix "e.g." style nit.
    The Latin abbreviation "e.g." is always succeeded by a comma in English
    Many manuals, e.g., the Chicago Manual of Style, require this.
    [One instance, in tbl(1), remains.  I'm leaving it so it doesn't cause
    merge conflicts with a rewrite I have in progress.]
