This is a loss to the 0MQ community. I'm sure everyone will agree that
you've always made impeccably accurate contributions.

Good luck with whatever projects you work on.

I'm happy to help with editing and review. However it'd be most fun to
open this to the community and suggest that it's time for any 0MQ user
who feels they are good technical writers to consider sending patches
for the man pages. Note that documentation for 2.1 and 3.0 overlaps in
most areas but you do need to target the two versions separately.

Would you send a patch to update that?
