These should be managed by the chapter committees, and voted on a part of the chapter. It would be counterproductive to vote on these individually.
Operationally, it is very difficult to mark up the text within the verbatim environment - frankly, the effort to do so is not worthwhile.
My recommendation is to make the chapter committees responsible for these. Note that in some cases, the "fixes" are to the annotations, and do not change the text, and hence need no vote.

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?
