Because somebody has to do it!  This is an Open Source project, so most
of the people do the work in their spare time (and this applies to 99%
of the developers in DragonFly).  Jan spend a considerable amount of
time to port PF and nobody ported the documentation yet.

I'm happy to integrate *your* port of the OpenBSD's documentation into our
official handbook.  Just port it, test it well on DF and send me the
files or put it on the website yourself.
