[OpenIndiana-discuss] Manpages and documentation -- where to start?

In terms of what could do with being more up to date may I venture the
zpool and zfs entries as starters?
They are fairly quick moving facets of the OS and the ones (man pages)
on my machine are over 9 months old.

The manpage consolidation is available under the CDDL.  However,
it needs to be maintained and incoporate changes made by Illumos,
so it might make more sense to do that in the Illumos project.

All non-manpage OpenIndiana-specific documentation is currently
on the wiki.
