If we make minor changes in examples in the text, do we need to annotate them with "ticket 0" so that they can be ultimately voted on?

In looking over the make check output, I see quite a few of those.  Chapter authors should check their chapters.

Alternatively, is there a 'correct' way of running 'make check' that won't generate these?  I ran autoconf in mpicompilechk, then configure.  Should I be specifying extra parameters or anything?
