zshall manpage

Hi devs,

Both zsh.1 and zshall.1 start with the following line:
¨Because zsh contains many features, the zsh manual has been split into
a number of sections¨

Then zsh.1 goes on to list:

zsh                Zsh overview (this section)
zshroadmap   Informal introduction to the manual
zshcontrib   Additional zsh functions and utilities
zshall      Meta-man page containing all of the above

Note: list item, zshall states ¨contains all of the above¨.

zshall.1  adds the following line before the list is given:

¨This manual page includes all the separate manual
pages in the following order:¨

Then zshall.1 goes on to repeat the list of man pages,
minus ¨zsh¨ and ¨zshall¨.

Question.  Shouldn´t zshall.1 include ¨zsh¨ in the list of sections?
AFAICT ¨zsh¨ is included in zshall.1.

If you agree that it should the following patch would add it to the

Hope there aren´t any typos in the above patch as I am not currently
on a system I could copy and paste.

Appreciate your time, thanks,
