Hi Foamers,
I found a checkMesh error with meshes generated with snappyHexMesh + snapEdge (by Niklas Nordin). It complains with some wrongOrientedFaces (not too much, allways around 30).

What does this error means? It is possible to correct it as a postprocessing using some meshing tool? And if not, could it corrupt the solver's results, or it is ok to run with this error?
