I've always liked the way OpenBSD provides Web-indexed manpages
versioned by OS release, so I can refer someone to documentation for
a particular command in the context of how it worked and what
options it supported as of a particular stable release version.

Granted, they have the luxury that their manpages for the core
distirbution are aggregated together in any given release already,
not scattered amongst numerous individual packages.
