@solene I think the issue is that there are many types of documentation. If you think of man pages as _reference_ documents, than I think they are great. If you think of man pages as complete documenting than they are very lacking. If I want to setup an email server, I'll read a tutorial and then reference the man pages to flush out the missing parts. But if I wanted to setup an email server and all I had was the man pages that would be considerably more effort.
