[Samba] lots of outdated docs

The web page https://www.samba.org/samba/docs/ must be from the last 
millenium, it offers a "tarball of the daily docs build" of version 3.3

The manpage for vfs_recycle is even worse, it says:
"This man page is correct for version 3.0.25 of the Samba suite."

Is there a chance that we can get man pages which describe all options 
of samba 4.2?

Specifically I was looking for info about recycle:inherit_nt_acl because 
it seems to work only for files, not for directories. This makes 
recycled contents of private directories readable by everyone.

This option does exist, but it is not even mentioned in the man page.

Also which permissions must be set for the .recycle directory itself to 
make it work? If the recycle directory or some of the subdirectories 
have wrong permissions, recycling simply silently fails.
