I think I've found three typos in the date program. I've attached a

Thanks for the patch. I agree that "e.g., text" is more grammatically correct than "e.g. text" given our bias to en_US in the source code (the same cannot be said of en_UK), so I've applied it, after fixing up the commit message to include a ChangeLog attribution of the file and method changed, and fixing the subject line to match conventions:

date: correct typos in date --help

There are several instances throughout the rest of coreutils ('git grep -l 'e\.g\.[^,]' | wc -l' lists 70 files, although not all of them carry the same weight); we should probably clean all of those. Since a typo fix falls under the trivial rule, I think we can accept a patch from you even though it would be longer than the normal 10 line cutoff for needing copyright assignment. Would you mind helping in this effort?
