Have been looking at

info find

for find (GNU findutils) 4.7.0-git

Although info describes -name option in "8.1.2 Warning Messages",  this is not 
the standard way
of listing command options.

I would be grateful if info for find could list find options in the standard

'-name PATTERN'
      Use PATTERN as the pattern.

I see -name well documented in section "2.3.1 Base Name Patterns":


The navigation structure isn't that bad either IMO:

  2 Finding Files
    2.1 find Expressions
    2.2 Starting points
    2.3 Name
        2.3.1 Base Name Patterns  <-- -name

One can find the -name option also via the INDEX:

Have a nice day,
