Docs are HTML only but are shipped with the source (component_name/docs/*.html) and should be present on all systems that build skaware stuff. This has been mentioned before in the #s6 IRC channel, and yes, patches to add manpages would be accepted. I've threatened to do the same, that or to rewrite the docs into something that trivially compiles into both html and man-style troff, but a lack of time (and the presence of a copy of lynx on all of my systems that run s6) has kept me from really digging in to the project. Cheers!
