Follow-up Comment #11, bug #63827 (project groff):

[comment #10 comment #10:]
> Should the 1.23 announcement/news mention that:

provide a pointer to that code)?

I don't think they've diverged all that much.  (Time will of course tell how
much they have done in a year or so.)  pdfroff(1) will continue to exist in
groff 1.23.0 distributions and point readers to Keith's site.

> * this is the last groff release that will have pdfmark bundled with it?

No, I don't care to give a hostage to fortune in that matter.  As it happens
I'm looking at withdrawing contrib/pdfmark on a branch right now, but I might
not finish that work or it might end up not happening for whatever reason.

I'd prefer the news and announcement files to state things that are known as
of the time of release, rather than risking baking inaccuracies in them. 
(Beyond those errors that inevitably arise after 20 people have proofread
something 20 times but only rear their heads after going to press.)
