Thanks for confirming. Do you know whether there's any plans for this to
change, or whether a request to Open Source these would have much chance
of being accepted?
Backporting the build-script changes to generate the nroff files is
obviously less appealing without the markdown sources too. Another
advantage (to Oracle, and everyone) of opening the source documents
would be opening the possibility of third parties contributing doc fixes
