missing subcommand lines

On the Subcommands section of the zfs(8) manpage, a subcommand is listed followed by the description of what it does, and its options.

When rendered on the FreeBSD manpage site, the line that states the subcommand (eg 'zfs create [-pu] [-o property=value]... filesystem') is missing.

This problem is seen across all display formats rendered by the site: html, ascii, pdf. It has been reproduced using the Micro$oft Edge (screenshot attached) and Firefox browsers.

This problem occurs when viewing the 12.1-RELEASE and 11.4-RELEASE versions of the manpage.

eg https://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?query=zfs&apropos=0&sektion=0&manpath=FreeBSD+12.1-RELEASE+and+Ports&arch=default&format=html

This problem is NOT seen when viewing the 10.4-RELEASE version of the manpage.


The manpage is essentially useless for its purpose of being a reference for the subcommands, if the subcommand it is describing is missing. The impact is HIGH.

I think this is a duplicate of #237514

It was fixed in 13-current, but apparently not back ported to 11.3 and 12 series
