Glancing at these three pages: 

1. <https://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?query=hier&sektion=7&manpath=FreeBSD>

2. <https://www.carlavilla.es/hier.7> (preview)


… yes, I do like the idea of linking out to a 
       source code-oriented page for /src

* plus parallel or subsequent updates to development(7)
and to anything else that might refer to hier(7) for the required content. 

That said: I'm not a developer. I rarely refer to the source roadmap (it took
me years to realise its relevance). 

Some people might, justifiably, want to retain a handy plain text
representation, as is currently seen with man 7 hier …


In any case: thanks for offering for at least part of this type of work :-)

Generally, a big +1 to things such as consolidation and deduplication.
