Bug Description

while this event is on the man page, it will not be shown on help:

inotifywatch --help
==========
...
        moved_to file or directory moved to watched directory
        moved_from file or directory moved from watched directory
        move file or directory moved to or from watched directory
        create file or directory created within watched directory
...

manpage:
==========
...
       move A file or directory was moved from or to a watched directory. Note that this is actually implemented simply by listening for both
              moved_to and moved_from, hence all close events received will be output as one or both of these, not MOVE.

       move_self
              A watched file or directory was moved. After this event, the file or directory is no longer being watched.

       create A file or directory was created within a watched directory.
...

the event is missing in
inotify-tools / src / common.c
