And we are busy borrowing each other's primary research for them... though it a man page, not a treatis on the evolution of signals since V7. Nor do the vast majority of command line flags have mention. Those that do are either 4BSD vs System V or XXXBSD vs Linux (and maybe a few FooBSD vs BarBSD, but those are rare).

My recollection is that the HISTORY stuff started showing up in BSD
man pages around the time of Net/2?
