As for troff/groff---there are generally already manpages for the
things discussed in the bug ticket, so you would be able to have
something to start with, it would mostly be an issue of figuring out
where they may or may not be inaccurate or incomplete.

As for a good source of info on troff/groff---I don't have one.
