--- Comment #4 from Darren Tucker <dtucker at dtucker.net> ---
There are lots of layers here which makes your reports very difficult
to action.

The man pages start out in OpenBSD and then get synced into OpenSSH
Portable with few (but some) modifications.  If you can identify
problems there then these are the two places we can help with.

Once it leaves our hands, distros make additional changes to the man
pages, then run them through some kind formatting pipeline that
ultimately results in the man and .po pages.  These are all outside of
our control and visibility, so we do not see these and cannot correlate
your reports with anything we could do something with).

If you can spot your issue in the OpenBSD man pages
(eg https://man.openbsd.org/ssh.1, https://man.openbsd.org/sshd.8 and
so forth), or the OpenSSH Portable mdoc files (eg
https://github.com/openssh/openssh-portable/blob/master/sshd.8 etc)
then those are things we can help with.  If you can't, it's unlikely we
will be able to either, and you should report the problem to the distro
in which you observed them.
