The process used in the past for man pages was that the docs team works
with us developers to write the HTML man pages, which are in turn
converted to SGML and *roff for Solaris and Linux, respectively. It
looks like the last update to the HTML page, 6392810 "javac manpage
needs to be updated to include JSR 269 and other Mustang options," did
not get converted to the other formats. If the actual *nix man pages,
regardless of format, are supposed to be generated in this fashion, it
would admittedly be a better architecture to have them as generated
files during the build and not track all three versions of the man page
under version control.
