Assuming I'm understanding the question correctly;

My intention is to make it easier to provide *more* content then is suitable 
for a man-page, or the doc/ directory, in a way that enables us to spit out 
the documentation in different formats, versioned and all.

Publican (read: DocBook wrapper) enables us to do this, amongst other things 
(translation, theming).

If it results in doc/ becoming obsolete, I don't know. For now, I'm merely 
building the general content of the books in a very superficial manner.

The rsync over ssh it attempts to do is my little 'release to www' thing; It's 
only available to people with a shell on and requires you 
have set up a ~/public_html/cyrus-imapd-X.Y-docs/ directory.

The command you are looking at to execute would be:

 $ publican build --langs=en-US --formats=html,html-single,pdf

The results would then be in tmp/en-US/
