Anthony J. Bentley brought this up in the past already.  I then
have added 

+.ds doc-str-St--p1003.1-2013   \*[doc-Tn-font-size]\%IEEE\*[doc-str-St] Std 1003.1-2008/Cor 1-2013

+.as doc-str-St--p1003.1-2016   " (\*[Lq]\)\*[Px]\*[doc-str-St].1\*[Rq])

to my future thing and gave him credit for that.  I think the real
name should be used instead of what you did given that the ISO
C entries etc. also go for the real names.
Just my one cent.

Hi,

There was 2 extra edition of POSIX 2008: one in 2013 and one in 2016

Some manpages refers to them (for example freebsd's rm(1)),

here is a patch to add them

Best regards,
Bapt

Hi Baptiste,

I strongly disagree.  These are not new editions.  They are merely
technical corrigenda that almost exclusively fix trivial typos and
subtle wording details that are beyond the scope of manual pages
in the first place.  We have found practically nothing related to
them that is worth mentioning in any manual page.

> Some manpages refers to them (for example freebsd's rm(1)),

The STANDARDS section in FreeBSD rm(1) is totally broken.
If you really want to reference TC1, then you have to say

  .St -p1003.1-2008

and then specifically explain in which respect TC1 makes a difference,
because that would be such a rare exception that merely referring
to TC1 without giving any details does not help the user at all.

> here is a patch to add them

No.  Please remove these from your tree: the macros, their
documentation, and all use cases.  Even if you find a handful of
cases where explaining something related to TC1 or TC2 is useful,
just talk about TC1 and TC2 in plain English.  No macros are needed
for something that appears only a handful of times in a huge tree.

It is among the important design goals of mandoc to prevent further
proliferation of low-utility syntax.

Yours,
  Ingo
