Fortunately, the point of Ville-Pekka's project is to provide a Wiki
(Moin) interface in front of the man pages, then a way to submit changes
back up stream.

In the end, we'll be inviting the whole Fedora community to help fix man
pages, all via the Wiki.

Once that gets going, that's when I recommend we look cross-stream at
what other distros provide and can we contribute to those as well.
