Update of bug #57876 (project groff):

                Category:                    None => Core                   
                 Summary: [PATCH] groff.1.man: Minor fixes, unchanged output
=> groff.1.man: Minor fixes, unchanged output


Follow-up Comment #2:

This was resolved by removing the patched material entirely.  Removing
"[PATCH]" annotation.

    man pages: Remove unncessary material.
    * src/preproc/tbl/tbl.1.man: Stop advising people to use
      adjustment-altering requests to bracket tables to cheaply set the
      alignment of text blocks ("T{", "T}") in table entries.  This is bad
      advice for man pages (it was overriding -dAD=l to force full
      justification on after a table in groff_ms(7)).  Adjustment requests
      can be embedded inside text blocks anyway, and you don't even have to
      remember to undo them.
    * src/roff/groff/groff.1.man: Remove novice-oriented material
      introducing the concept of man page section numbers and man(1) usage
      advice.  This is not appropriate here; intro(1) is the proper place.
