Man pages are not limited to the synopsis of tools. Large portions of
information currently on the wiki is on-topic for man pages:

https://wiki.alpinelinux.org/wiki/Alpine_Linux_package_management

apk(8)

https://wiki.alpinelinux.org/wiki/Apk_spec

apk-database(7)

https://wiki.alpinelinux.org/wiki/Creating_an_Alpine_package
https://wiki.alpinelinux.org/wiki/APKBUILD_Reference

abuild(1)

APKBUILD(7)

and so on. If an overhaul of the core docs on the wiki is due, then I
think lots of it should be moved into man pages as the single source of
truth.
