OpenGL manpages

I am interested in a fate of the OpenGL, GLU and GLX manpages shipped
with every X release since I was a child, and which vanished with
transition to the modular release structure in the 2005.

In an old revision of ModularFilesMissing in the wiki ([1]), these
manpages are marked as dropped in favor of "SGI upstream", mentioning
some consensus, no traces of which I could find in the archives of
xorg-modular mailing list.

SGI apparently have stopped maintaining these manpages way back in the
1997 (the date of last change of manpages downloaded from SGI site;
while 6.9.0 features manpages which are dated by the year 1998).

Having said this much, I wonder, if anyone maintains these manual pages,
what license applies to them (either [2] or some other license), and if
nobody maintain them, may I just clean them up a bit and distribute them
that way?
