                 Release: 4.2.20
           Fixed Release: None



In findutils-4.2.2 of my fc4 box, "man find" contains following example:
       find . -perm +022
       find . -perm +g+w,o+w
       find . -perm +g=w,o=w

       All three of these commands do the same thing, but the first one uses
the octal representation of the file mode, and the other two use  the
symbolic  form.  These commands all search for files which are write-able by
either their owner or their group. The files don’t  have  to be  writeable 
by both the owner and group to be matched; either will do.

       find . -perm -022
       find . -perm -g+w,o+w

       Both these commands do the same thing; search  for  files  which  are 
writeable by both their owner and their group.
Both of these should refer to group and other, not the owner.
