Yes, but not what we say, a "must have" change that should take place in
a "FreeBSD errata branch", as the latter is not supposed to change
often, to prevent our users from being upgrading so often which is a
nightmare for their managements, and what's more, it's possible to view
the current manpages through our website.

For an errata branch, the security officer and the release engineering
team does not generally approve a proposed change, unless it is
considered as a "must have" change, i.e. a security fix, or reproducible
instability fix.  The new documentations will go to CVS -HEAD, then
merged into the stable branch(es), and finally get into the next release
