   Thanks for reporting those.
   I've done this:

           * src/ls.c (usage): Clarify description of --author.

I don't know how you clarified it, but if you did what I think you
did, i.e. added something like "print it only in when doing a long
listing".  Then it would be a good idea to do the same thing to other
options that "depend" on -l.  A quick look produces the following list
of options (not sorted in any particular way):

  -s, --size                 print size of each file, in blocks
      --time=WORD            show time as WORD instead of modification time:
      --time-style=STYLE     show times using style STYLE:
  -i, --inode                print index number of each file
      --si                   likewise, but use powers of 1000 not 1024
  -h, --human-readable  print sizes in human readable format (e.g., 1K 234M 2G)
  -G, --no-group             inhibit display of group information
