As part of an initative to clean up the Github PR submissions, submitting
this patch to the mailing list for inclusion. I know David didn't like
the manual URL but it is still better than the current one that goes to
a completely wrong document.

@Samuli: can we have this for 2-5 and 2-6, please?

It's not overly useful to merge patch to master or 2.5 that points to the 2.4
documentation...  (but I'm willing to adjust this particular link according
to branch, if "the powers that be" can put the manpage online [and maintain
it])

Gert complained about this URL requiring an update (sorry for not 
replying to Gert's email, but I cannot find it anymore - inbox 
housekeeping gone wrong).

For 2.5 we currently have:
https://build.openvpn.net/man/openvpn-2.5/openvpn.8.html
That I think is built automatically, so no need to "maintain" it anymore 
(checking this with Samuli).

For 2.6/master we don't have anything yet.

Cheers,
