You know, if you find a problem with the documents you're more than

also welcome to update them yourself.

Looks like the page was updated a little over two years ago according to
v2.9.3, 23 July 2000
I remember using this document (possibly even same version, let me check

problem you're complaining about (people not updating documentation).
